Mu Sokua

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Does anyone know to which country Mou Sokua fled?

So far the only information is that she has fled to an undisclosed location and she left by plane.
Cambodia National Rescue Party deputy president Mu Sochua escaped the country on a flight from Phnom Penh on Tuesday ahead of warnings she would be arrested for conspiring with jailed party leader Kem Sokha to overthrow the Cambodian government, the now exiled lawmaker said.

Speaking to RFA’s Khmer Service from an undisclosed location, Mu Sochua said she feared loss of her freedom at the hands of courts controlled by the ruling Cambodian People’s Party led by Prime Minister HE.

Last time she was in exile it was in France. I guess seeing as her boss is there that's where she will go, along with all the other CNRP scaredy cats.

"In 1972, Sochua's parents sent her to Paris for further studies.[1] A year later, she relocated to San Francisco to join her brother over there. When the Khmer Rouge took control of Cambodia in 1975, her parents vanished. Sochua would remain in exile for the next 18 years. While Sochua was in the US, she earned a bachelor's degree in Psychology from San Francisco State University and a master's degree in Social Work from the University of California, Berkeley before returning to Cambodia to help rebuild a society shattered by war."

Article on Mu Sochua from the CSM, 27 October 2017:

Amid Cambodia crackdown, this leader fled. But she hasn't given up on change
Recognition abroad for Mu Sochua's human-rights work hasn't always translated into political power at home. As a political crackdown in Cambodia continues, she's been presented with unprecedented pressures – but perhaps new opportunities, as well...

Scared of living the rest of her life in gaol?

Dunno, never asked her.
I was referring to the "other CNRP" scaredy cats.
