The appeal made by Hang Chakra, the editor-in-chief of the Khmer Machas Srok newspaper, against the 1-year jail sentence and 9 million riels ($2,250) fine handed to him by the Phnom Penh municipal court for defamation will be heard by the Appeal Court this Tuesday. Chuong Chou-ngy, Hang Chakra’s defense lawyer, said that he will go to the court to defend Hang Chakra. He said that his client’s case would improve and be fair if the court is not subjected to political pressure.
