Free Mam Sonando from 20-year prison sentence, Amnesty International tells Cambodian authorities
March 05 , 2013

Amnesty International is currently calling  on Cambodian authorities to free Mam Sonando, a prisoner of conscience and government critic, who was given a 20-year prison sentence on October 1 2012.

Sonando, leader of the Association of Democrats and owner of Beehive Radio, was said to have been found guilty of anti-state offences.

In what is believed to be an attack on freedom of expression, Amnesty Internationals Researcher on Cambodia, Rupert Abbott, had this to say:

Mam Sonandos 20-year prison sentence was inexplicable and baseless, with no evidence presented at the trial that he initiated a violent uprising against the government.

Rather, he has been imprisoned simply for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression and must be freed immediately and unconditionally.

Mam Sonandos case is indicative of an extremely worrying trend: the Cambodian courts are being used to silence human rights defenders, particularly in the context of conflicts over land ownership and forced evictions.
