Family of Kem Sokha outside Appeal Court as ex-CNRP leader makes bail bid

The wife and mother of Kem Sokha were outside the Appeal Court in Phnom Penh this morning, as the jailed former opposition leader was brought to the capital for a bail hearing that was ultimately rejected.

In tears, his 92-year-old mother Sao Nget told reporters: “I want to meet my son. I want to go inside the court to meet my son,” she said.

Both women were eventually allowed into the court.
