No bail for Khmer Krom protest monks

Three recently defrocked monks were denied a request for bail by the Court of Appeal yesterday following their arrest in November for allegedly taking part in anti-Vietnam demonstrations.

The three monks – Seung Hai, Khith Vannak and Sang Kosal – were arrested on November 11 and 12 following protests calling for the “return” of a broad swath of southern Vietnam, referred to by some Cambodians as Kampuchea Krom, to Cambodia. Seng Sivutha, the presiding judge, said the suspects had no right to appeal to the Supreme Court.
