Mu Sochua to Appear at Appeal Court Oct 2

Written by DAP NEWS -- Sunday, 27 September 2009

Mu Sochua, Sam Rainsy Party (SRP) Lawmaker, will appear at the Appeal Court on October 2, according to the Appeal Court prosecutor general’s recalling issue singed on September 23. This recalling issue of the appeal court prosecutor general was made two days after Mu Sochua arrived Cambodia from a visit to the US.

Mu Sochua’s appearance is related to an appeal over the verdict in a defamation case with Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Ouk Savuth, appeal court prosecutor general, on Saturday told DAP News Cambodia that he would question Mu Sochua about the case with the premier.

Ky Tech, the premier’s lawyer, said that he has so far not received any notification of the upcoming case.

The lawyer has already stated he is ready to face Mu Sochua at the Appeal Court or Supreme Court if she chooses to challenge the August 4, 2009, ruling of the Phnom Penh court.
Mu Sochua could not be reached for comment on Saturday.

Mu Sochua left rebuffed a small crowd of around 10 waiting journalists upon her arrival at Phnom Penh International Airport as she was escorted through the VIP gate.

Mu Sochua’s actions were puzzling to some of the Cambodian reporters given her recent scathing criticisms of democracy and human rights in Cambodia during her trip to the US.
