In Brief: Journalist appeals prison sentence

Freelance journalist Ros Sokhet lodged an appeal on Monday seeking to overturn a disinformation conviction handed down by Phnom Penh Municipal Court earlier this month. On November 6, the court sentenced Ros Sokhet to two years in prison for sending threatening text messages to well-known CTN anchor Soy Sopheap, accusing him of extorting money in order to keep a story out of the news. “He knew his messages were wrong, but he never thought he should be jailed,” said his sister, Ros Keaveak.
