It was recently reported that former Cambodian opposition leader Sam Rainsy had filed a case against Facebook to obtain information regarding activities on Prime Minister Hun Sen’s account.

It is said that Rainsy is seeking the information to confirm allegations regarding fake likes on Sen’s account, his use of the platform for death threats, and the use of government funds for ads.

According to Rainsy’s attorney, Richard J. Rogers of rights group Global Diligence LLP, the case raises  questions Facebook’s stance on human rights abusers who manipulate elections,

Hun Sen had been a target of criticism from Western countries for banning the main opposition party, and for shutting down media outlets critical of his administration.
