Cambodia urged to drop charges against Boeung Kak Lake activists

Cambodian authorities must drop politically-motivated charges against four women involved in peaceful protests about the situation at Boeung Kak Lake in Phnom Penh, where almost 20,000 people have been forcibly evicted since 2008, Amnesty International said today.

Bo Chhorvy, Heng Mom, Kong Chantha and community leader Tep Vanny -- were charged with “obstructing public officials” and “insult” – crimes that carry hefty fines and prison sentences of up to one year.

That is bullshit sentences. The government should be sentences up one year in prison for insult and obstructing the public.

2:41 PM I agree. The government are allowed to do anything they want. Even afetr taking their houses and land they can still sentence the victims to prisons. How can Cambodia progress with the ruling government allowing to get away with crimes. Thanks US for supporting Hun Sen!! bravo!!
