Cambodia second last, again, in world justice index

South Korea outperforms Hong Kong, just behind Japan and Singapore.

Cambodia has landed in second last place on the World Justice Project (WJP) 2022 Rule of Law Index, with a ranking of 139 out of 140 countries and scoring just one place behind Afghanistan and one place above Venezuela.

Last year, the WJP – an international civil society organization with the stated mission of working to advance the rule of law – ranked Cambodia 138 out of 139 countries on its rule of law index, prompting an angry response from the government.

Justice Ministry spokesman Chin Malin derided the latest WJP annual index, saying the report was politically motivated because Cambodia is preparing to hold a national election next July.
