Cambodia: Taking to the streets: Freedom of peaceful assembly in Cambodia
This report reveals a pattern of human rights violations in the context of assemblies: the imposition of arbitrary restrictions on freedom of peaceful assembly; the unnecessary and excessive use of force by security forces; and the use of the judiciary to harass and imprison those who organize and participate in them. A culture of impunity surrounds human rights violations committed in the context of assemblies, with not a single official or member of the security forces held to account for the often violent repression of protests in Cambodia.
