E.U. To Release ‘Everything But Arms’ Investigation Report in November

The European Union is expected to release the findings of its investigation into human rights abuses in Cambodia in November, a move that will determine if the country continues to enjoy the “Everything But Arms” trade preferences, according to a Cambodian labor rights activist.

The investigation was announced in February this year, following a severe crackdown by the government on the political opposition, independent media organizations and civil society groups.

Khun Tharo, coordination officer at labour rights group Central, said the European Union will release an update containing the findings of its investigation on November 11, with the Cambodian government given a chance to officially respond within the next three months.
