Lawyer for Ty Sovantha fronts Interior Ministry

The lawyer representing social media celebrity Thy Sovantha in the defamation case linked to an alleged affair scandal with deputy opposition leader Kem Sokha was questioned by anti-terror police yesterday.

Saing Vanna declined to go into details about the interrogation yesterday, only to say that some points were “clarified” and that his client, Sovantha, was not available to attended the meeting due heath reasons.

She would meet with investigators in the future, he added, when she was well again. “We will still keep our complaint,” Vanna said. Sokha has been hounded by allegations of infidelity since recordings were released a few weeks ago on social media purporting to be of the acting CNRP leader engaged in flirtatious conversations with a mistress.

Sovantha launched a defamation suit in response to disparaging comments made about her during the conversations, which led to a formal investigation.
