Trial of RFA Reporters Ends in Cambodia, Verdict Still to Come

A court in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh on Friday concluded the trial of two former Radio Free Asia journalists charged with espionage and the production of pornography, with the court’s verdict on both charges scheduled for delivery later this month.

Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin were taken into custody in November 2017 and charged with “illegally collecting information for a foreign source” under Article 445 of the Criminal Code. A charge of production of pornography was later added to the charges against them.

The two men face possible prison terms of from seven to 15 years.
