In Brief: Vote on Mu Sochua immunity due today

Opposition lawmaker Mu

Sochua is to learn today whether her immunity has been lifted by a vote

of the ruling party-dominated National Assembly. Cambodian People's

Party lawmaker Cheam Yeam told the Post on Sunday that it had not yet

been decided whether the parliamentary vote would be by open or secret

ballot. Mu Sochua said the vote should be done "according to

conscience", adding that she didn't believe lawmakers would lift her

immunity unless the government influenced the vote.
