In Brief: SRP fund for justice

The Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) has created a solidarity fund to help public figures who have lost court cases that the party has deemed unjust. The fund is not just for SRP-aligned politicians, SRP lawmaker and spokesman Yim Sovann said, but for "all people who have been fighting for social justice and democracy". So far, money has come primarily from Canada, the United States and Australia. Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan said Sunday that the SRP funding plan amounted to "political propaganda".
