On the Third Anniversary of his Arrest, Kem Sokha Demands Freedom

Former opposition leader Kem Sokha has today reiterated that the charges against him are false, adding that he hopes to participate in Cambodia’s economic recovery and political development.

President of the outlawed Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) Kem Sokha, on Sept. 2, 2020—the third anniversary of his arrest—continued to demand that the charges against him be dropped. A wide range of critics, both domestic and international, have lambasted Prime Minister Hun Sen for his decision to have Sokha arrested prior to the 2018 national elections.

Taking to his official Facebook page, Sokha stated that it has now been three years since he was stripped of his liberty and his right to serve the nation politically.

“Through past court hearings, I see that there is not enough specific and sufficient evidence to charge me with the alleged [conspiracy with foreign powers] crimes,” he said.
