Kem Sokha’s lawyers walked out of his trial hearing before it finished on Thursday after the judge interrupted them during a heated argument over access to evidence, which ended in the judge postponing the proceedings for two weeks.
Sokha, the leader of the banned opposition CNRP, is accused of conspiring with a foreign power to overthrow the Cambodian government. He was arrested in 2017, jailed for a year and later released to de facto house arrest.
The politician faces up to 30 years in jail if convicted.
