Human rights group Amnesty International urged Thailand on October 17 not to extradite
opposition member Sok Yoeun. The SRP member was accused of a rocket attack on PM
Hun Sen's motorcade in 1998, and fled to Thailand where he was arrested in late 1999.
Amnesty said Yoeun was a refugee and prisoner of conscience and described the allegations
against him as "widely believed to be unfounded". His extradition hearing
is expected to be heard in late November.
