CCHR calls for the immediate and unconditional release of opposition leaders and for an end to violence
Press Release
Released on 2014-07-16
The Cambodian Center for Human Rights (“CCHR”) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of the opposition Cambodian National Rescue Party (“CNRP”) leaders currently detained in pre-trial detention and for an end to violence. Today, nine leaders of the CNRP were charged with Article 459 (Leading insurrectional movement), Article 495 (Incitement to commit a felony), and Articles 28 and 218 (Instigation to commit acts of violence) of the Cambodian Criminal Code. The charges were brought against Mu Sochua, Ho Vann, Men Sothavrin, Keo Phirum, Real Khemrin, Oeu Narith, Khin Roeun, Nut Rumduol, and Long Ry. The first six of them have already been arrested and are currently in pre-trial detention. Additional charges have also been filed against two “unidentified” individuals. The speed with which charges were brought and the fact that all the people arrested are high-ranking CNRP leaders who were not directly responsible for acts of violence only reinforces CCHR’s belief that the charges brought against the CNRP leaders are politically-motivated.
