Phnom Penh (FN), Mar. 21 – Former opposition activist Yim Sinan and Hun Kosal were arrested on Tuesday after sharing distorted news related to the king on social media, a senior police official told Fresh News.

"According to the voice of the people in the coffee shop, we can clearly see who is the real king,” Yim Sinan posted on his Facebook page.

“I saw that they were abusing and humiliating the king in many ways. I, as the next generation of politicians, are committed to mobilizing all of our capabilities with former opposition leader Kem Sokha to protect the king and throne,” Hun Kosal wrote on his Facebook.

In this regard, Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen commented on the post that it is not a freedom of expression, but the incitement with ill-intended agenda.
