During rallies in Banteay Meanchey and Battambang over the weekend, CNRP deputy president Kem Sokha spoke of a new strategy aimed at forcing Hun Sen out of office.
Party spokeswoman and lawmaker-elect Mu Sochua yesterday said that the plan's details would depend on what happened after Sokha and CNRP president Sam Rainsy's questioning at Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday over allegations they incited violence leading to at least four deaths on January 9.
...
It's really a show of fear, not strength . . . Around the market area, Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha stopped to talk to the people and [armed security forces] were there to intimidate," Sochua said.
...
Rainsy and Sokha yesterday called on security forces to refrain from violence against demonstrators and to join the opposition movement.
...
Sokha also had a warning for members of the security forces who may use force against demonstrators in the future - you may yet have your day in court.
"I would like to implore [members of the security forces] who are competent not to join absolutists who shoot the Khmer, who are the same [people] as them. Please stay neutral," he said.

Report on the Arrest of Kem Sokha and other Public Figures | Working Group for an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism

Report on the Arrest of Kem Sokha and other Public Figures
...
There is a Cambodian working group, and a key member of that national working group is Kem Sokha, an eminent human rights defender and the director of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights. On 31 December 2005, Kem Sokha was arrested by the Cambodian authorities on charges of criminal defamation against the Government, resulting in his pre-trial detention. The arrest of Kem Sokha triggered the concern of the Working Group in regard to the declining human rights situation in Cambodia, affecting human rights defenders, including those belonging to the Cambodian working group. This was the primary reason why , at short notice, the Working Group sent two of its members, Vitit Muntarbhorn (Thailand) and Param Cumaraswamy (Malaysia) to Phnom Penh to appraise the situation , to try to visit Kem Sokha and to explore future options.
...
The arrest of Kem Sokha is one of several recent arrests and charges brought against human rights defenders and well known public figures by the Cambodian authorities on grounds of criminal defamation. These incidents have added to the "climate of fear" emanating from government-related practices. This was noted by several people with whom the Working Group members talked.
The circumstances behind the arrest were that the Cambodian Center for Human Rights, and other NGOs, including the Community Legal Education Centre, were part of the organizing committee of a public event to mark International Human Rights Day on 10 December 2005, which had been authorized by the authorities. One banner belonging to the Cambodian Center for Human Rights had additional comments written on it, including a comment which gave rise to the defamation charges - it allegedly accused the Prime Minister of Cambodia of "selling land" to Vietnam. Kem Sokha , Director of the Cambodian Center for Human Rights was arrested with Yeng Virak, Director of the Community Legal Education Centre on 31 December 2005. Later, Kem Sokha's deputy, Pa Nguon Teang, was also arrested.
On a positive note, at the time of the visit of members of the Working Group, Yeng Virak was released on bail, although the defamation charges had not been dropped. However, the bail application of Kem Sokha had been rejected at first instance and was pending appeal before a higher court. Both Kem Sokha and his deputy were in pre-trial detention in a Phnom Penh prison.
...
While Kem Sokha's lawyers had periodic access to him in prison, Kem Sokha's wife had only been permitted to visit once; however, on the day when the Working Group members talked to his wife, they were informed that Kem's wife had been told she would be granted permission to visit him twice a week. We understand that during the week following our visit she was given permission to visit him four times a month; Kem Sokha has health problems needing attention from his own doctor; to date his doctor has had no access to him; a medical report from his doctor should also be prepared and given to the prison authorities and to the judge considering his bail application; given the poor conditions of the prison, Kem Sokha's health has been affected negatively; Regrettably, the Working Group members were unable to visit Kem Sokha as permission had not yet been granted for them to visit, prior to their departure from Phnom Penh;
...
Ensure that Kem Sokha's family and doctor have access to him consistently in any event; the need for such humanitarian access pertains to the situation of all prisoners; Enable a medical report on Kem Sokha's health to be prepared by his doctor and ensure that it is taken into account by the prison authorities and the judge considering his bail application, for the sake of humane treatment;
...
Kem Sokha and other public figures were released on bail after the visit of the Working Group members, primarily due to foreign pressure from many sources.
