Cambodian opposition leader to face trial

Cambodian opposition leader Kem Sokha will face trial on treason charges after investigators found enough evidence to proceed with the case, a court said on Monday. Kem Sokha was arrested in 2017 and his opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) banned ahead of an election last year that was condemned by Western countries, who have demanded his release by veteran authoritarian leader Hun Sen. “After investigation and questioning, the judge understands that there’s enough evidence against the accused Kem Sokha of treason charges in collusion with foreigners,” the Phnom Penh municipal court said in a statement.
