Six months since the arrest of Cambodias Kem Sokha, regional MPs renew calls for his immediate release General—02 Mar 18

Bangkok--2 Mar--ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights

Lawmakers from across Southeast Asia today expressed renewed concern over the continued politically motivated imprisonment of Kem Sokha, President of the now-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), reiterating their call for his immediate and unconditional release, one day before the six-month anniversary of his detention.

"Kem Sokha's continued detention is an outrageous abuse of power by Cambodia's ruling party. The charges are so blatantly politically motivated and the judiciary so clearly acting at the behest of the Prime Minister that it's a wonder the government even bothers going through the motions," said Malaysian MP Charles Santiago, Chairperson of ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR).

"These trumped-up charges should never have been brought in the first place. They should be immediately dropped and Kem Sokha unconditionally freed," he added.

Kem Sokha was arrested on 3 September 2017 on charges of alleged treason stemming from a 2013 video, in which he discussed efforts toward peaceful, democratic change in Cambodia. He faces 30 years in prison, if convicted.

His arrest came amidst a broader crackdown on civil society and opposition voices that also saw the shuttering of independent media outlets and NGOs and ultimately the di
