Sam Rainsy, the “acting president” of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), failed to appear at court for questioning on Wednesday concerning a complaint filed by Minister of Interior Sar Kheng.
According to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court schedule, Rainsy was due in court on Wednesday morning to be grilled by Deputy Prosecutor Seng Kim Lak over his claim that Sar Kheng, who is also deputy prime minister, supported a revenge plot against Hun Sen.
“The suspect did not appear in court as summoned by prosecutor Seng Kim Lak and did not put in a request for a lawyer,” court spokesperson Kuch Kimlong said.
