Mam Sonando Demands Justice

Praying with Mam Sonando’s supporters at pagoda after the prison visit-17/08/12

Seven MPs from the Sam Rainsy Party visited Mam Sonando today at Prey Sar prison.

“I tried putting my head down to sleep but my head felt harder than the concrete floor “, said Mam Sonando to describe his physical health.

Suffering from diarrhea for the past week from food he consumed, Mam Sonando’s physical health is of concern. He has made request for a medical check up outside of the prison clinic. This should be granted to avoid further complication.

“I have no regrets for I have committed no crime. My heart cries out to the villagers who are losing their land and my head continues to think of the management of my rädio station”, he continues with a firm but frail voice.

The prime minister’s involvement in the case before the court’s action has raised alarm and further targeting of human rights defenders about this Kratie case must not be tolerated. it is a problem of economic land concession that should be resolved by letting the people speak and make their own claims and not a matter for the court.
