A Cambodian court on Thursday ordered a re-investigation in a spying case against two former U.S.-backed radio journalists, saying that the concluded investigation was insufficient.
Phnom Penh Municipal Court Presiding Judge, Im Vannak, ordered a further probe the day he was due to pronounce a verdict in the case against Uon Chhin, 51, and Yeang Sothearin, 37, who were former Radio Free Asia (RFA) reporters.
They were arrested in November 2017 in Phnom Penh for allegedly running an illegal production studio to send information to the Washington-based RFA.
They were, however, released on bail in August 2018.
RFA closed its Phnom Penh office in September 2017 after the Cambodian Government enforced its law, requiring media outlets to apply for a license and to comply with tax rule.
