An earlier version of this news release misstated the charges filed against Nuth Pich. The court charged Pich with discrediting judicial decisions (article 523 of Cambodia’s penal code), incitement to commit felony decisions (article 494), and incitement to discriminate (article 495).
The updated version of this presser clarifies that Khaled Hassan’s trial began in February 2019 and that he is still being held in detention.
