A source close the Supreme Court indicated on 23 March 2010 that the court will hold a hearing on 07 April to decide on the appeal case by SRP MP Mu Sochua who is accused of defaming Hun Xen. On 28 October 2009, the Appeal court held a hearing on this defamation case after Mrs. Mu Sochua appealed the decision handed down by the Phnom Penh municipal court which ordered her to pay a $4,100 fine. Mrs. Mu Sochua refused to pay that fine. The Appeal court upheld the decision issued by the lower court. Mrs. Mu Sochua then appealed to the Supreme Court at the end of 2009. Yim Sovann, SRP spokesman, said that Mrs. Mu Sochua is currently traveling to the US and she will returned back by the beginning of April. However, he said that he does not know the date set for the Supreme Court hearing.
