A meeting between Adhoc representatives and officials from the European Union on Wednesday saw the case of rights activist Chan Soveth discussed, the group said yesterday.
According to Adhoc President Thun Saray, the organisation called on the diplomats to closely monitor Soveth’s case – the activist will appear in court Monday over allegations he provided assistance to the perpetrator of a unspecified crime – but stopped short of asking for legal aid.
“We just asked them to watch closely the process, and to support our process of the case, because we did not do anything wrong,” Saray said. “[Soveth] just did the activities of a human rights activist.”
