Cambodia: Human rights concerns July to December 1992

, Index number: ASA 23/001/1993

This report details AI's concerns in Cambodia. Apparently politically motivated killings occured in the first half of 1992 but the number and scale of such armed attacks accelerated in November and December as opposition parties increased their activities and voters began to register for the May 1993 elections. Other major human rights violations include torture and ill-treatment of prisoners, including criminal prisoners, and intimidation and harassment of real or suspected critics of the government. AI believes that the lack of an independent judiciary leaves the police free to exercise arbitrary powers and precludes the possiblity of impartial investigation. Also described are abuses by the PDK (Khmer Rouge), including mass killings of Vietnamese civilians.
