Cambodia: INGO Letter: Vacate convictions against BKL human rights defenders

, Index number: ASA 23/008/2012

In this open letter, regional and international non-governmental organizations express grave concerns regarding the arbitrary arrest and mistreatment of 13 women human rights defenders at the Boeung Kak Lake (BKL) development site in Phnom Penh on May 22, 2012. The Cambodian government should immediately and unconditionally vacate these convictions and release these 13 women, plus two community representatives arrested later, who have been imprisoned solely for expressing their views and engaging in peaceful assembly.
