HRW urges Cambodia to drop ‘political’ case against opposition chief

0

PHNOM PENH: Human Rights Watch on Saturday urged Cambodian authorities to drop the “politically motivated” case against opposition leader Sam Rainsy as tensions between him and strongman Prime Minister Hun Sen spike. A court issued an arrest warrant for Rainsy on Friday over an unserved defamation sentence from 2011, a day after Hun Sen threatened him with legal action for comments urging the premier to move towards a peaceful exit from office. HRW on Saturday called on authorities to “rescind the politically motivated arrest warrant”.
