No Foreigners Questioned in Foreign Conspiracy Case, Sokha Lawyer Says

A lawyer for opposition leader Kem Sokha on Wednesday said no foreigner had been questioned during the more than two-year court investigation into allegations that Sokha conspired with a foreign power against the government.

Lawyers for Sokha, who was arrested in September 2017 and accused of attempting to overthrow the government with U.S. support, on Tuesday appealed a decision by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court to bring his case to trial.

Sokha and the U.S. have denied the charges. The court on Monday said the case would be brought to trial, but a trial hearing date has not been announced.
