CAMBODIA: CRACKDOWNS ON OPPOSITION, CIVIL SOCIETY AND MEDIA MUST BE ADDRESSED BY THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL
In September 2017, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Cambodia warned that Cambodia “seems to be moving inexorably towards a precipice.” Since the Special Rapporteur sounded the alarm, the situation has further worsened. The Government has deepened its crackdown on the political opposition, independent media, civil society, human rights defenders and activists. The 37th session provides one last opportunity for the Council to address this deteriorating human rights situation before the Cambodian general elections, scheduled for 29 July 2018.
