Kem Sokha Trial, Day 1: Hearing Concludes With Questions About Rights Group Funders

The first day of opposition leader Kem Sokha’s trial for treason begins at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court today, more than two years after his arrest. Journalists were denied passes to attend the hearings, though a Reuters reporter said “a few” were allowed in on the day.

As of midday, there were least 200 people gathered outside the court, including authorities, media and Sokha supporters. About 20 uniformed police officers are on the sidewalk on the court side of the street, with everyone else kept on the other side.
