Phnom Penh (FN), Nov. 10 – Phnom Penh Municipal Court decided to give more freedom to president of former Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) Kem Sokha, according to the press release dated 10 November 2019.
The court said it continues to put Kem Sokha under judicial control with the following obligations: (a) must not leave the border of the Kingdom of Cambodia; (b) must not engage in political activities; (c) must respond to the summons of authority.
It is worth recalling that Kem Sokha was arrested in his house in Toul Kork district, Phnom Penh city at midnight of 3 September 2017, following a leaked video with his confession that he has implemented the order of the United States, by attempting color revolution following the model of former Yugoslavia and Serbia.
The Royal Government of Cambodia has accused Kem Sokha of committing “treason", conspiring with foreigners in the purpose to topple the legitimate government.
Kem Sokha was sent to jail in Tropan Plong Prison, Tbong Khmum province.
Following a one-year pre-trial detention, Sokha was released on bail and put under judicial control by not allowing to leave border of street 313, street 311, and street 608; nor meet former leaders of CNRP; nor engage in any political activities.
