In a dramatic turn of events, Kem Sokha’s defense lawyers walked out of court this morning, alleging irregularities with a piece of evidence and for not being allowed to address their grievances in court.
The piece of evidence in question is purportedly a joint statement between Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha during the formation of the Cambodia National Rescue Party. The court is currently discussing Kem Sokha’s career during the formation of the now-dissolved party.
For the last two days, the defense alleged that the evidence reference code on the copy of the joint statement given to them did not match with the reference code on the prosecutor’s copy of the evidence nor with the judge’s copy.
