Justice Unlikely in Kem Ley T-Shirt Trial, Activist Kung Raiya Says

Dissident Kung Raiya, who faces up to four years in prison on charges related to his printing of T-shirts with murdered political analyst Kem Ley’s image and words, said he does not expect justice when the court’s verdict is announced next month.

Phnom Penh Municipal Court Judge Ouk Reth Kunthea concluded Raiya’s trial on Wednesday, although the activist was not present in court, his defense lawyer Sam Sokong said.

In messages to VOD on Wednesday, Raiya said he had traveled to Thailand for medical treatment and had not been able to return to Cambodia in time for the hearing due to Covid-19-related border closures.
