The Phnom Penh Municipal Court investigating judge has continued questioning former opposition leader Kem Sokha, who was charged with treason and conspiring with a foreign power to topple the government.

According to Sous Vichearandy, the deputy secretariat of administration at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, investigating judge Ky Rithy was questioning former CNPR leader Kem Sokha at Correctional Center 3 in Thbong Khmum province.

“He is continuing the procedure of questioning him at CC3. It is not finished yet,” Mr Vichearandy said.

On September 3, Mr Sokha was arrested after undated video footage from Australia-based CBN news was posted on Facebook, appearing to show Mr Sokha saying the US government had been helping him to push for regime change in Cambodia since 1993.

Article 443 of the criminal code defines conspiracy with a foreign power as having a secret agreement with a foreign state or its agents with a view to fomenting hostilities or aggression against the Kingdom of Cambodia.
