Kem Sokha Says Court Unable To Understand His Political Strategy

The court has resumed the trial hearing Thursday morning, where the judges will delve into Kem Sokha's work from 2008 till he was arrested in 2017.

Opposition leader Kem Sokha told VOA Khmer he would spend more time to explain to the court and prosecution his works as a human rights activist and politician, which he said they were mistaken as an attempt to start a revolution.
