Phnom Penh Court Issues Arrest Warrant Against Small Party Members for Incitement and Insult

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Monday ordered the arrest of two minor party members for allegedly for incitement and insult against another minor party president, Pich Sros, in a complaint dating back to October 2019.

The court issued arrest warrants on April 20 for Heang Kimsroeun, the vice president of Khmer United Great Nation Party, and another party official, Thol Sophana, on the preliminary charges of incitement and insult. A police report linked to the arrest warrants suggests the duos recent whereabouts were unknown.

“According to the report on April 10, 2020, of the Toul Kork Administration Police Chief, the persons identified above have been identified as committing incitement to commit a felony and insult,” read the arrest warrant.
