Battambang Court summons Mok Ra, a newly elected commune councilor from Sam Rainsy Party for more questioning.
Mok Ra won his complaint against a CPP official who attempted to buy his vote at the past senatorial election in January 2012.
Mok Ra is the second SRP commune councilor to be summoned by the court following the commune elections on 3June. A SRP Kandal commune councilor was arrested this week.
This shows a clear attempt by the ruling party to use the courts to threaten SRP local officials. It is a very disturbing sign for democracy.
