Jailed Activist Begins Hunger Strike Ahead Of Biden’s Visit To Cambodia

A jailed outspoken American-Cambodian activist has begun a one-week hunger strike to protest conditions in prison ahead of US President Joe Biden’s visit to the kingdom.

Lawyer and campaigner Theary Seng, a long-time critic of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, was imprisoned for six years for treason in June in a mass trial that also saw around 60 opposition figures convicted.

Her strike comes ahead of Biden’s visit to capital Phnom Penh later this week to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit.
