Target: Hun Sen, Prime Minister of Cambodia
Goal: Drop bogus espionage charges against radio journalists.
Two radio journalists have been arrested, illegally detained, and alienated for over two years by the Cambodian government. They should be freed from their charges immediately. Sign the petition to demand that Cambodia drop its bogus charges against the journalists.
Radio Free Asia journalists Uon Chhin and Yeang Sothearin were arrested and charged with espionage. No evidence has been brought against the two men, who sat in prison for over one year and who have now been forbidden from traveling. Over and over again, instead of dropping charges, judges prolong the investigation. The men face dire prospects and have been alienated by society.
These bogus charges are the only way for Cambodia to censor its media and silence opposition. Sign the petition to demand that Cambodia drop these charges against the two journalists.
Dear Prime Minister Sen,
For over two years, two radio journalists have been charged with espionage. They sat in jail for one year and even while they are free, they still cannot travel, pursue jobs, or have personal lives. This bogus charge has ruined their futures.
Charges such as espionage and treason against members of the press are unfounded. They are the only way to silence your opposition. I demand that you drop the charges against these journalists immediately.
