Cambodia to free more than 70 opposition activists

Post by ExPenhMan »

Well, well, well. A little diplomatic persEUasion, a.k.a., the economic threat hammer, seems to go a long way.

PHNOM PENH (Reuters) - Cambodian Prime Minister HE has ordered the release on bail of more than 70 opposition activists arrested in recent weeks and accused of plotting to overthrow the government, he said on Thursday.

HE, who has ruled Cambodia for more than 34 years, has been under increasing international pressure to improve his human rights record, with the European Union threatening the withdrawal of important trade benefits. . . .
