Phnom Penh – At least 20 local officials of the now-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party in Battambang province have been summoned for questioning related to allegations they violated a Supreme Court order which dissolved the CNRP in November 2017.
Fear has gripped local opposition officials since the CNRP was dissolved by the Supreme Court. For former members of the CNRP, even organizing a private party or posting messages and activities online comes with surveillance and questions from the authorities.
Phan Reth, a former deputy commune chief in Kdol Daun Teav, said he was summoned to appear at the court on May 8.
