Sam Rainsy called for questioning

Phnom Penh Municipal Court has summoned Sam Rainsy to appear on April 20 to answer to allegations that he falsified public documents and spread disinformation. It also threatened to issue an arrest warrant if he fails to show. Sam Rainsy’s lawyer, Choung Choungy, said he would represent his client, who is currently in self-imposed exile in France. The summons was issued on March 26 and received on Friday. The opposition leader faces up to 18 years in prison if convicted of the charges, in addition to a two-year sentence handed down by Svay Rieng provincial court in a related case in January.
