Affairs will hold a march in the capital March 3 and the following day will present

PM Hun Sen. Other events will take place across the country.

Sok Youen

The extradition hearing in Bangkok of former SRP MP Sok Youen continued February

28. Party leader Sam Rainsy traveled to Thailand to testify on behalf of Youen, who

is accused of master-minding a rocket attack on PM Hun Sen's motorcade in Siem Reap

in 1998. The Cambodian government wants him extradited back to the country to face

charges. Youen's family now lives in Finland.
