Kem Sokha’s Lawyers Call for Expedited Hearing

Following a report from government-friendly media suggesting Sokha’s trial could be delayed by four years, his legal team have called for expedited proceedings.

Kem Sokha’s lawyers on Sept. 9 urged the Ministry of Justice and the court to expedite the hearing proceedings of the former opposition leader to bring an end to his case as quickly as possible.

Pheng Heng, one of Sokha’s lawyers, said that the Ministry of Justice has put down a policy to speed up the case of congestion.

“Kem Sokha’s trial is a congested case—it has been more than three years [since Sokha’s arrest] now,” he said. “I hope that the Ministry of Justice and the court will deal with Kem Sokha as soon as possible, as well as other cases.”
