In Brief: SRP, intl donors raise funds

The opposition Sam Rainsy Party said Wednesday that party members and overseas supporters have contributed donations on behalf of Hang Chakra, publisher of the opposition-aligned newspaper Khmer Machas Srok, who was convicted on charges of spreading false information last month and sentenced to one year in prison. The donations follow an appeal last week by the party seeking funds to help support the embattled editor's family. "Hang Chakra's family is very poor. We are helping him as a humanitarian issue, not as a political one," the party's acting president, Kong Korm, said Wednesday.
