Lawmakers Asked To Leave Courtroom in Trial Against Activists

A group of opposition lawmakers were kicked out of a hearing at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Thursday. The case involved several opposition activists, who are being tried for their involvement in violent demonstrations in July. But the judge asked several lawmakers to leave the courtroom, claiming they were not involved in the case and could therefore not be present. Critics say the move was a violation of their rights to be present at a public hearing.
