CCHR:Rights of defendants not respected

The Cambodia Centre for Human Rights (CCHR) on Thursday released a monitoring report on the respect of defendants’ rights during trial, concluding that their rights at the Appeal Court have not been fully respected.

From November 2017 to October last year, CCHR monitored 452 cases involving 667 defendants. All the cases concerned individuals who had been convicted but had appealed.

The report found that 157 of the 667 defendants appeared in the Court of Appeal in blue convict uniforms, while 347 appeared in dark orange uniforms or their own clothing.
