The complaint alleges that he was constantly threatened in jail and forced to name some of the leaders. Sarith's lawyer told the court that the jail authorities had forced him to do so. Sarith said that not everything can be said online and that he should be allowed to appear before the court. Sarith's lawyer said the complaint was based on information provided by relatives.
