Trial of Cambodian opposition party chief set for next month

A Cambodian court has announced that the trial on treason charges of opposition leader Kem Sokha will begin next month, more than two years after he was arrested.

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court said in a statement on Monday (Dec 9) that the trial of Kem Sokha, president of the dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party, will start Jan 15.

Kem Sokha was arrested in September 2017 and charged with treason for having links to a US-based democracy promotion organisation.
