WFP employee to challenge conviction

A LAWYER representing Seng Kunnaka, a United Nations World Food Programme employee convicted of incitement and jailed for six months, said yesterday his client would appeal against the court’s decision. “We will appeal the conviction to the Appeal Court this week,” Chou Sokheng said. Seng Kunnaka was jailed in a rapid-fire trial on December 18, after he handed out two copies of a web article critical of the government. Jean-Pierre DeMargerie, WFP’s country director, declined to comment yesterday.
