Treason Investigation into Kem Sokha Closed, Days after Damning EU Report

A Cambodian court on Friday closed the investigation into treason charges against opposition leader Kem Sokha, with the investigating judge now expected to decide on whether to send the case to trial or drop the charges.

Kem Sokha was arrested in 2017 on treason charges for allegedly conspiring with foreign powers and after spending one year in a Tbong Khmum prison was released on bail in 2018 and kept under house arrest till Sunday, when the court changed his bail conditions to allow him to travel within the country.

Friday’s development also follows the release of the European Union’s report on possible suspension of the ‘Everything But Arms’ trade scheme, which was accessed by Radio Free Asia on Thursday.
