Interesting story is coming your way from Human Right Watch
Cambodian authorities should immediately cease harassing former opposition party members in the courts, Human Rights Watch said today. The Battambang prosecutor Ky Bunnara has summoned 25 former officials of the dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) to appear for questioning before the Battambang provincial court over two weeks beginning on May 8, 2019.
The summonses allege that the former opposition party officials violated the Supreme Court ruling that dissolved the party in November 2017. Many former opposition members have continued to exercise their right to free expression to criticize Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government and the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) on social media.
“The Cambodian government continues to harass numerous opposition officials in the courts and to threaten them with prison time long after the main opposition party was unjustifiably disbanded,” said Brad Adams, Asia director. “The government should immediately end the political harassment campaign against the CNRP and drop this latest batch of absurd court cases.”
