, Index number: ASA 23/010/1995

As a party to this international covenant, Cambodia has a duty to ensure that all domestic legislation complies with its terms. AI calls on the President and members of the National Assembly to amend the draft Press Law, thereby removing the possibility that editors and journalists can be imprisoned for publishing criticism of the government.
