Appeals Court Considers Case of Beehive Radio Owner

The Cambodian Court of Appeals on Monday began a hearing in the case of jailed Beehive Radio owner Mam Sonando, as hundreds of supporters gathered outside the court demanding his release. Mam Sonando is serving a 20-year prison sentence on charges he helped foment a secessionist movement in Kratie province, charges that rights workers say have little evidence and were leveled at him after his public criticism of Prime Minister Hun Sen.
