Cambodia seeking royal pardon for Veera, Ratri?

The Cambodian government is seeking a royal pardon for the two Thai activists arrested and detained for illegal entry and spying.

A high-ranking source in the Cambodian government said Veera Somkwamkid and Ratri Pipattanaopaiboon should be released soon. Veera and Ratri, who are linked to the yellow-shirt People's Alliance for Democracy, were arrested at the Thai-Cambodian border early this year.

It is believed that they will be released during Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's visit to Cambodia tomorrow and are likely to return home as part of her entourage, the source said.
