Today, the Battambang court sentenced Mok Ra, a Sam Rainsy Party commune councilor in Battambang to 8 months in prison and fined him 5 milllion riels.
Mok Ra was accused of illegally recording a phone conversation during the Senate election in 2012 while in fact he was talked into selling his vote to the ruling party.
At the time, SRP filed a complaint with the provincial electoral committee and Mok Ra was awarded 5 million rieles.
the judgment of the Batttambang court today shows a clear mockery of justice. Mok Ra will take his case to the Appeal Court.
