Phnom Penh (FN), Sep. 21 – Cambodian Phnom Penh Municipal Court issued an order on Tuesday dropping the charge and stopping the arrest of a political researcher Seng Sary, according to the court’s order seen by Fresh News on 21 September 2021.

The order came after Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen, on 20 September 2021, called on the court to consider withdrawing the arrest warrant to Sary.

“After listening carefully to Seng Sary's interview with The Cambodia Daily on 18 September 2021, Sary’s explanation on six-scenario analysis is reasonable and acceptable,” the premier wrote on his Facebook page.

Seng Sary thanked Samdech Hun Sen for accepting his interpretation of the six-scenario analysis.
