Phnom Penh Municipal court on Monday heard two cases against Sam Rainsy, “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), on charges of inciting the military and insulting King Norodom Sihamoni.
The verdicts are expected to be announced next Thursday.
Rainsy was charged with “inciting military personnel to disobedience” and “demoralising the army” for an appeal to the military he made on Facebook on December 9, 2017.
