Kem Sokha to appear at Municipal Court

HUMAN Rights Party leader Kem Sokha will return to Cambodia on Wednesday and appear for questioning at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on October 21, HRP spokesman Yem Ponharith said yesterday. Kem Sokha’s case dates back to 2006, when he was the president of the Cambodian Centre for Human Rights and former CCHR staffers accused him of defamation and the use of false documents. “Generally, we have nothing to be worried about,” Yem Ponharith said. “We do not have the aim to escape from the court.” He added that Kem Sokha, who has been abroad for about a month, would be defended by 70-year-old lawyer Sa Sovan, as no one else was willing to take the case.
