The Phnom Penh Municipal Court issued a second warrant to former Free Trade Union president Chea Mony to appear in early February over a case where another group of unions have sued him for incitement.

The new summons came after Mr Mony failed to appear in court following a summons from the prosecutor on January 22.

According to the warrant from the Phnom Penh Municipal Court’s prosecutor Sieng Sok on January 23, Mr Mony has been asked to appear for a second time on the morning of February 9.

The case was bought by Dara Sopanha and Keth Sovandy, the lawyers on behalf of the Union Federation, who filed a complaint of incitement.

Mr Sok said: “The individual [Chea Mony] has to come following this warrant on time and bring along relevant documents.”

In late 2017, lawyers representing the interests of about 120 federations and unions, Dara Sopanha and Keth Sovandy, filed a lawsuit against Mr Mony, accusing him of inciting the European Union and United States to put economic sanctions on Cambodian after he gave an interview to a foreign radio station.

The unions have asked the court to prosecute Mr Mony according to the law and asked for $1 million in compensation.
