Former CNRP Party Officer Jailed After Bail Release Last Year

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court has jailed a former local officer of the outlawed opposition CNRP for allegedly violating the terms of his bail seven months after he was released from prison alongside dozens of other CNRP members, his lawyer said on Monday.

Judge Koy Sao ordered the arrest and detention of Heng Chan Sothy, the former CNRP deputy chief for Pur Senchey district in Phnom Penh, on Friday for failing to comply with the court’s orders to check in with local authorities while on bail, attorney Sam Sokong told VOD.

However, Sokong disputed the justification provided by the court for Chan Sothy’s arrest.
