Four People Seeking Legal Advice Arrested at Licadho Office, But Banteay Meanchey Police Denies 

Human rights NGO Licadho claimed that six police officers arrested four people who were in their office in Banteay Meanchey province on Wednesday afternoon to seek legal counsel for their imprisoned relative, political activist Kong Saron. However, the police denied the arrest, stating that they were there to “invite” them to the station to “receive humanitarian assistance”, and that the individuals have since returned home.
