Cambodia: End refoulement of Montagnard asylum seekers

Index Number: ASA 23/1126/2015

Following Cambodia’s recent forced return of at least 45 indigenous minority Montagnards to Viet Nam, Amnesty International calls on the Cambodian authorities to immediately refrain from further violations of the principle of non-refoulement. The organization calls also on the government of Viet Nam to refrain from retaliations against those refouled, following reports that one Montagnard asylum seeker was detained and beaten by Vietnamese authorities upon his return and information received by Amnesty International that 36 of those refouled were detained overnight in Viet Nam.
