The Alliance for Freedom of Expression in Cambodia (AFEC) appeals to the Cambodian government to probe into the accident involving RFA’s reporter Sok Serei, which occured on December 14.
While picking up his daughter from school, Sok Serei was hit by a pickup truck in Phnom Penh.
Cambodian Center for Human Rights' (CCHR) secretary Ou Vireak says the government is not responding quickly enough and suspects that the incident was not a ‘real’ accident. Meanwhile, Ministry of Interior's spokesman Lieutenant General Khieu Sopheak states that the government is investigating into the case.
Meanwhile, representatives from the Free Trade Union of Workers for the Kingdom of Cambodia (FTUWKC) sends a follow-up letter appealing for the Court of Appeals to set a hearing date for the two men accused of murdering FTUWKC’s former president Chea Vichea.
Chea Vichea was shot dead in broad day light in front of a newsstand in Phnom Penh, 2004.
