Accused Thai spy ends bid for bail

Phnom Penh Municipal Court announced on Friday that a Thai national detained on spying charges has declined to seek bail ahead of his trial, which is scheduled for Tuesday. “It is his right to change his request. It is an acceptable request,” said Sok Roeun, the deputy prosecutor who charged Sivarak Chutipong with spying after his arrest on November 12. Sivarak has been accused of breaching national security for obtaining the flight schedule of ex-Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and passing it to Thai authorities.
