Cambodian opposition trial ends with lawyers’ arguments

The trial of 61 members of the outlawed Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP), who stand accused of attempting to overthrow the government, has concluded with prosecution and defense lawyers presenting their final arguments.

Deputy prosecutor Seng Hieng urged the judge at Phnom Penh Municipal Court to find all defendants guilty of incitement after they established an in-country task force and then launched a diplomatic strategy designed to oust the government in late 2019.

“We ask the judges to convict the defendants of conspiracy and incitement causing serious disturbance to society,” he said. “We request those who are currently bailed be arrested and punished according to the law.”
