Court orders Sokha to stand trial on January 15 for treason

The Phnom Penh Municipal Court has set January 15 as the trial date for Kem Sokha, the former president of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) who is under court-supervised bail on a treason charge.

In a press release issued on Monday, the municipal court said Sokha will stand trial on the conspiracy charge under Article 443 of the Criminal Code.

The decision came after the Court of Appeal ruled that he remain under court-supervised bail on a charge of “conspiracy with a foreign power”.
