Cambodian PM seeks pardon for Thais convicted of espionage

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has asked the Minister of Justice to consider pardoning two Thais convicted of espionage, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said yesterday.

The ministry said the proposed reduced sentence for Veera Somkwamkid and pardon for Ratri Pipattanaopaiboon would coincide with the cremation of King Father Norodom Sihanouk on February 4.

"The Ministry of Justice ... will decide very soon on this matter," a statement said.

The statement said Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra requested the pardons during the Asean Summit in Phnom Penh in November and reiterated the request yesterday.

The two Thais were found guilty of spying in a prohibited military zone.
