Court Wraps Up Hearing in Case Against Beehive Radio Owner
Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Friday finished a week of hearings in the secessionist trial of Beehive Radio operator Mam Sonando and is expected to issue a verdict Oct. 1. Nine others were put on trial alongside Mam Sonando this week, with another four tried in absentia, for allegedly leading a secessionist plot against the government. The court says that plot led to a violent clash between villagers and security forces in Kratie province in May. VOA Khmer's Heng Reaksmey reports from Phnom Penh.
