Sam Rainsy Appeared in Phnom Penh Court-Nov 5 - 2004-11-05

Opposition Party President Mr. Sam Rainsy appeared in the Phnom Penh court Friday to answer questions in the FUNCINPEC lawsuit against him.

In the lawsuit, FUNCINPEC sued Mr. Sam Rainsy for wrongly accusing its president Norodom Ranariddh of taking bribes from CPP in exchange for joining the coalition government.

Speaking to reporters outside the courthouse after the court appearance, the opposition party leader said he provided the court all the evidence he had to back up his corruption charge.

Phnom Penh court officials refused to comment on Mr. Rainsy's testimony by saying it's continuing with its investigation.
