  • The Court of Cambodia charged environmentally activists and insulted the king of the country.

They arrested three of them last week as they documented waste discharge into a city river.

A text message of charges by Plang Sophal, deputy prosecutor of Phnom Penh Municipal Court sent to confirm it.

They broke the laws but did not specify that how the activists did this, they insulted the king by collecting the evidence.

Charges of insulting the Monarchy and less majesty are rare in Cambodia.

They have to face 10 years of prison if found guilty of plotting and for royal insults,five years in jail.

They targeted Mother Nature Cambodia in a very harsh way. He was overseas and charged in absentia and he told, the regime sees his peaceful activism a threat.

The outrageous charges of plotting were an escalation.

The United States last week scrapped a wildlife conservation programme with Cambodia for what it said was a failure to tackle logging and intimidation of environmentalists.

The defendants should find a good lawyer to challenge this issue in the courtroom instead of fabricating the news.
