Former CNRP adviser Kong Korm to testify in Kem Sokha court date

Former politician Kong Korm said he is willing to appear before Phnom Penh Municipal Court to testify in relation to the treason charge facing Kem Sokha, president of the banned opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP).

Korm, a former top adviser to the Supreme Court-dissolved CNRP, said he received a court summons on Friday calling for him to appear at court on January 23 as a witness in Sokha’s case, in which he is charged with “conspiring with a foreign power to overthrow the government”.

“As a citizen and someone who used to be involved in activities with Kem Sokha, I won’t hesitate to accept any call to clarify matters in front of the investigating judge,” Korm said on Monday.
