Court Remand Thach Setha in Custody

Phnom Penh: The Vice President of the Candlelight Party, Mr. Thach Setha, was ordered by the court to be temporarily detained after being questioning on the evening of January 16, 2023.

Authorities arrested Thach Setha on the evening of January 16 on a charge of "non-compliance with traded instruments "in 2019.

On the night of January 16, after the investigation, the court decided to send Mr. Thach Setha to the detention center of the 1st Correctional Department, waiting for a new order.

Interestingly, the arrest of Thach Setha comes after he was instructed by Hun Manet a few weeks ago advised by Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen that if he did not want to be arrested, Please do not do anything illegal.

Prime Minister said: "Hun Manet reported to me. He knows that Hun Manet is the next prime ministerial candidate to succeed me. Thach Setha went to see him and Manet advised Thach Setha not to commit any crimes.. If you do not commit illegal acts, nothing will happened to you?"
