Reporter called to court

RADIO Free Asia reporter Ratha Visal has been summoned to Ratanakkiri provincial court relating to a 2007 land dispute in which Pen Bonnar, the former Ratanakkiri provincial coordinator for the rights group Adhoc, has also been summoned.

Pen Bonnar, who was removed to Phnom Penh by Adhoc after initially facing the threat of incitement charges last month, was summonsed for a second time.

Pen Bonnar said that he had yet to see the summons himself, but that his lawyer had informed him that he was to appear in Ratanakkiri provincial court on September 15.

Ratha Visal also confirmed on Tuesday that he was to appear for an investigation of charges of "accomplice of incitement".
