The Appeal Court Thursday rules to detain Mr. Mam Sonando, owner of radio station Beehive 105 FM saying the Phnom Penh court does not finish its investigation yet.
Judge Saly Thira, president of the jury reads the ruling, and said that if Mr. Mam Sonando is on bail, it might have an effect on the Phnom Penh court's investigation.
Mr. Mam Sonando was whisked off from the court room into a car by Prey Sar prison' guards.
