In Brief: Defamation suit lawyers in court

Mu Sochua's

lawyer is to be in court today in relation to the opposition MP's

defamation case against Prime Minister Hun Sen. Her lawyer, Kong Sam

Onn, was summoned by the prosecutor to clarify her case. She is suing

the PM over remarks made in a speech last month that she says were

defamatory and directed at her, although her name was not used. Hun Sen

is countersuing Mu Sochua for defamation, saying he had not referred to

her. Hun Sen's lawyer, Ky Tech, told the Post he would also be in court

today to explain his client's case.
