Lawyer insists on border committee

The lawyer for opposition leader Sam Rainsy says a new border committee must be established if the Phnom Penh Municipal Court intends to prosecute his client on disinformation charges. “If the court does not follow my request and appoint a new committee, my client must be acquitted,” Choung Choungy, Sam Rainsy’s lawyer, said Wednesday. Investigating Judge Oeung Sieng said the request, originally presented during a questioning session last week, was still being considered, as was the question of whether to issue an arrest warrant for Sam Rainsy, who is currently abroad.
