Exiled Cambodian opposition leader slams 'constitutional coup'
Date created :
Cambodia is in crisis. Earlier this month, a key opposition leader, Kem Sokha, was charged with treason. He could now face up to 30 years in jail. Meanwhile, The Cambodia Daily, a highly regarded broadsheet, was forced to close after it was ordered to pay millions of dollars in back taxes. Sam Rainsy, Cambodia's opposition leader in exile, slams a "constitutional coup" in his country and says the "façade of democracy has crumbled".
