NGOs' officials appeal to King Sihamoni to pardon opposition party's officials and activists who were charged and sentenced, according to Cambodia National Research Organization CNRO's director Dr. Heang Rithy's letter.
In the letter Dr. Heang asks the king to grant him an audience so that he can inform the king about injustice in the Cambodian society.
Dr. Heang did not specify what issues he will tell the king. Opposition party's leader Sam Rainsy was sentenced to 18 months in prison for criticizing the government of corruption.
There is no reaction from King Sihamoni about Dr. Heang's request yet, but the palace officials say that the king has sent a letter to Prime Minister Hun Sen to consider pardoning the opposition party officials.
