The legal team of Kem Sokha, the president of the former opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP), on Wednesday complained of being attacked by supporters of Sam Rainsy, his fellow party co-founder.
Sokha’s defence lawyers were this week accused by Facebook users of “working for Hun Sen” after offering their opinion regarding a bet between Rainsy and Prime Minister Hun Sen on the legal fate of their client.
Sokha is on bail awaiting trial for treason, and in November, his fellow CNRP co-founder Rainsy offered Hun Sen a bet that Sokha would have the charge dropped by March 3.
