Kung Raya Trial Completed in the Absence of Government Critic

Frequent government critic Kung Raiya’s trial was completed on May 20 without the presence of the defendant, who was staying in Thailand in anticipation of the verdict.

The barely hour-long trial was completed by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Wednesday, with Kung Raiya represented by his lawyer Sam Sokong.

The critic was arrested in July at a memorial service for slain political commentator Kem Ley, charged with “incitement to commit a felony” and given bail in November.
