Phnom Penh, Jan 16 (TIWN) More than 80 Cambodian civil society groups on Thursday have urged the Phnom Penh Municipal Court to broadcast live the treason trial of opposition figure Kem Sokha after hearings had begun a day before amid heavy criticism around transparency.

The 66-year-old Cambodia National Rescue Party co-founder is accused of conspiring with the US to overthrow Prime Minister Hun Sen’s government. He faces up to 30 years in jail if found guilty, reports Efe news.  On Wednesday his public trial began with NGO representatives and journalists barred from attending.
