Kem Sokha Meets Diplomatic Representatives Following Easing of Bail Restrictions

A day after his bail conditions were eased, opposition leader Kem Sokha met with the French and U.S. ambassadors at his residence on Monday. The meetings focused on the opposition leader’s health and did not delve into the current political scenario, according to a close of aide of Kem Sokha.

Kem Sokha’s bail conditions were relaxed by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Sunday, ending his house arrest and allowing him to move within the country. But, he still cannot travel overseas or engage in political activity. The bail conditions were modified after Kem Sokha’s lawyers requested that the charges against him be dropped on November 7.

“Actually they only discussed his health, his personal situation, and exchanged some views on how we should move forward on building democracy,” said Muth Chantha, a close aide to Kem Sokha.
