Kem Sokha, Cambodian opposition leader discharged on bail


The leader of Cambodia's main opposition party, Kem Sokha, has been released on bail, the country's pro-government Fresh News website said on Monday.

"Kem Sokha, former president of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, was released on bail," Fresh News reported, quoting an anonymous source.

Kem Sokha, leader of the now-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) was arrested and accused of treason last September. He has been in pre-trial detention since then.

Cambodia's Supreme Court dissolved the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) last year at the request of the government of long-serving Prime Minister Hun Sen.
