Khan Lai, a resident in Poipet commune, a boom town on the Cambodia-Thailand border, celebrated a housewarming party in early January. There were some 200 guests including his neighbors and former members of the local, now-dissolved opposition party.
But the party was cut short when police spotted the festivities and intervened.
Lai, 44, an opposition activist, and other opposition officials were questioned by the police.
