Loggers jailed in Thailand to appeal

A court in Thailand’s Ubon Rachathani province is set to hold an appeal on August 2 for 16 Cambodian loggers jailed last year for illegally entering Thailand and destroying forests, Cambodian officials said. “I received information that [the court] will hold an appeal hearing on that day,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said yesterday. In September 2009, the court sentenced 15 Cambodian loggers to nine years and three months in jail, and another logger received a sentence of six years and two months. An appeal was filed on October 22 by consular officials in Thailand’s Sa Kaeo province.
