A member of the Khmer National Liberation Front (KNLF) left Prey Sar prison on Tuesday (Nov.20) after serving his sentence.

Thuy Vy was arrested in 2017 in Phnom Penh, charging with incitement to commit crimes, and sentenced to 18 months imprisonment.

He told Khmer Times of his release, and that he’ll continue to ask the government to release other incarcerated KNLF members.

. .

The government accused the KNLF of being a terrorist organization.

Since 2014 more than 20 KNLF members have been convicted of incitement, plotting to overthrow the government.  Others were arrested for trafficking of firearms.  They received one to ten years in jail each.
