CHRC rejects report to UN on ‘human rights crisis’

Cambodian Human Rights Committee (CHRC) spokesman Chin Malin on Wednesday rejected a report by a group of NGOs to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) that the Kingdom is facing an “ongoing human rights crisis”.

Malin said he also expected that the possible adoption of a resolution by the UNHRC would balance the positive progress of Cambodia’s human rights situation with any concerns.

He was responding to a report submitted by 28 local and international human rights organisations to the UNHRC last week that urged the body to adopt a resolution requesting the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights “to monitor and report on the situation of human rights in Cambodia”.
