OHCHR to be asked to intervene for two Thais held in Cambodia
"The trial and verdict for Veera Somkwamkid and Ratree Pipapatanapaiboon were unjust," he said, explaining why the defence wants to involve the OHCHR.
Natthaporn said the petition will be submitted to the OHCHR next week.
He said the defence will take a two-tracked strategy - involving the OHCHR and appealing to overturn the verdict and sentencing.
In regard its next step in the litigation, the defence was waiting to obtain the official copy of the verdict before filing for a bail review and launching the appellate review.
Last week, the Phnom Penh Court of First Instance found Veera and Ratree guilty and sentenced them to serve eight and six years in jail respectively.
