Lawyers for former CNRP president Kem Sokha have applied to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court to resume his trial, more than six months after it was suspended out of concerns for Covid-19.
In a letter dated Monday and signed by Sokha’s four defense lawyers, the legal team asks for the trial to restart as soon as possible since the courts have been operating as normal again.
“The court is proceeding with trials as usual every day,” the letter says. “We ask the court to make the decision to continue the process of the trial.”
