Kem Ley - a prominent Cambodian anti-corruption hero - was murdered in broad daylight. His murderer was convicted yesterday, but no one believes it was actually him. 7 of 10 witnesses were the police – in a country where more than half of the people think the police are corrupt. There needs to be an independent investigation!
The man on trial had admitted shooting Mr. Kem Ley, a government critic. But glaring holes in the case, which recalled past assassinations, raise troubling questions.
