In Brief: Mu Sochua's appeal thwarted by court

Opposition lawmaker Mu Sochua, convicted of defaming Prime Minister Hun Sen, has delayed filing her appeal to the Supreme Court. The Sam Rainsy Party parliamentarian was due to file it last week after her conviction was upheld by the Court of Appeal but was forced to delay because the courts closed for the Water Festival. “I have already prepared my appeal for the Supreme Court,” she said. “Whenever the court reopens its doors, I will file a lawsuit immediately.” Mu Sochua was found guilty in August of defaming the prime minister and ordered to pay a total of 16.5 million riels (US$3,963) in fines and compensation.
