Cambodian Senior Official: Mam Sonando’s Conviction is the Court’s Independence

AKP Phnom Penh, October 03, 2012 —

The conviction of Mr. Mam Sonando, President of the Association of Democrats and Owner of Beehive Radio FM 105 MHz, is the court’s procedure, in which no one can interfere, H.E. Keo Remy, Secretary of State for the Council of Ministers and Vice Chairman of the Press and Quick Reaction Unit said at a press conference yesterday.

“It is the court’s independence, no one can interfere,” he said.

Mr. Mam Sonando was arrested on July 15, 2012 in connection with a so-called secessionist plot in Kratie, a northeastern part of Cambodia and in early this month, Phnom Penh Municipality Court convicted him for 20 years in jail and fined 10 million Riel (about US$2,500).

At the press conference, H.E Keo Remy also made a public criticism against some opposition parties’ members over a motion requesting U.S. President Barack Obama not to visit Cambodia in November during the 21st ASEAN Summit.

This move has no influence on the U.S. president’s upcoming visit, he underlined.
