Supreme Court hears political party’s case

The Supreme Court yesterday heard a case related to a three million riel fine ($750) imposed on the Sam Rainsy Party after it was sued by the Ministry of Interior for allegedly filing a report late in 2007.

The law requires political parties to file a report on activities and spending before December 31 each year. The SRP filed a 2006 report on January 2, 2007. In 2011, the Phnom Penh Municipal Court ordered the SRP to pay the fine, and in January last year the Appeal Court upheld the decision.

“I asked the Supreme Court to reject all the lower courts’ verdicts,” said Chuong Chou Ngy, the SRP’s attorney. The verdict is due on March 12.
