PHNOM PENH, (Khmer Times) – On Sunday, July 27, the  Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) will hold a big rally in front of the Botum pagoda to promote party policies and justify their decision to end their boycott and return to the National Assembly.
Vice president of the CNRP, Kem Sokha, testified before the Phnom Penh Court of First Instance regarding the Freedom Park riot Friday morning.
Kem Sokha stepped out of the courtroom after about five minutes. He told reporters that he was not involved in the violence which occurred at Freedom Park.  “I was not at the Freedom Park on July 15. I was in the Kampong Cham province, so the judge had no questions to ask me,” Kem Sokha said.  
Answering the reporters, Kem Sokha highlighted the CNRP lawmakers’ objectives in the National Assembly. The first thing he wants do is to draft a new regulations for the National Election Committee. “It is very significant to have an independent National Election Committee for the next mandate in Cambodia,” Kem Sokha said. 
Independent social analyst and president of Khemarak University, Dr. Sok Touch, commented on the court proceedings, saying that there was no reason to bring Kem Sokha  in for questioning because the suspects had already been released.
“It is a political game to delude the public and not let them criticize the court,” said by Dr. Sok Touch.
