Charges dropped against Cambodian political researcher

Court decision made after Prime Minister Hun Sen's request on behalf of Seng Sary.

A Cambodian court has dropped all charges laid against a prominent political researcher after Prime Minister Hun Sen took a personal interest in the case and asked authorities to consider withdrawing his arrest warrant.

Seng Sary, who lives in exile in Thailand, had outlined six hypothetical scenarios for the formation of a coalition government that included Sam Rainsy from the court-dissolved Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP).

This was in response to Sam Rainsy’s recent proposals for the formation of a national unity government, and Seng Sary included references to the short-lived reconciliation in Myanmar between the military and ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
