The ministry expressed “great surprise and concern” over the embassy’s comments on Friday that there was “No evidence. No trial. No justice” in the case of Sokha, who is currently on bail awaiting trial on a treason charge.

And you absolutely know for sure that all the detainees in Guantanamo were conspiring to blow up innocent people?

 

Yeah, must be true, the US government never lies.
