The owner of Beehive Radio was released from prison on Friday, ending eight months of incarceration.
Mam Sonando told VOA Khmer in an interview his freedom was a small thing, but that he would continue broadcasting news to Cambodians and would continue his work with the Association of Democrats, a civic group he says aims at informing people about rights and democracy. He is not planning on joining any political parties, he said, despite broad support from the public.
On his release from prison Friday, supporters outside the jail called him a “hero.”
