Sok Oudom, the owner and manager of Rithisen radio in Kampong Chhnang City, 95 km north of Phnom Penh, was arrested on the same charge of “incitement to cause chaos” on 13 May, 2020 after broadcasting a report about a land conflict between the residents of a village and a local military official.
After being held for more than 220 days, Sok Oudom was finally sentenced on 22 December to 20 months in prison and a fine of the equivalent of 4,000 euros on a charge of inciting the villagers to “cause chaos.”
