Cambodia’s state of emergency law takes effect

Cambodia’s law on the state of emergency was signed by Acting Head of State Samdech Say Chhum on Wednesday, going into effect immediately, according to a royal decree.

Endorsed by Chhum on behalf of King Norodom Sihamoni who has been in Beijing, capital of China for a routine medical checkup, the royal decree said the law was promulgated after it had been adopted by the National Assembly and the Senate as well as approved by the Constitutional Council.

Cambodia made the law after the country has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases earlier this month. The Southeast Asian nation has so far recorded a total of 122 confirmed cases of the COVID-19, with 119 patients cured.
