Judge, Prosecutor Question Kem Sokha on ‘Convict’ Rainsy’s Rhetoric

A Phnom Penh Municipal Court judge and prosecutor probed Kem Sokha on Wednesday about his political collaboration with CNRP co-founder Sam Rainsy, in light of what the court officials called Rainsy’s “violent stance.”

Sokha, president of the outlawed main opposition CNRP, is on trial for allegedly conspiring with a foreign power to overthrow the government, a charge which he denies. He faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

On Wednesday afternoon, Sokha was again asked about the decision to merge his Human Rights Party with the Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) to form the CNRP, and whether any foreign national was involved in the decision.
