Prime Minister Hun Sen on Monday said he wanted to speed up criminal cases involving incarcerated women, by possibly renting hotel rooms to accelerate the pace of these hearings.

The suggestion was made on the prime minister’s official Facebook page on Monday, where he said the around 20,000 outstanding cases involving women should be expedited asking the relevant ministries to find solutions to the problem. The prime minister was speaking at Cambodian National Council for Women.

“Samdech Techo [Hun Sen] has asked the Ministry of Justice to speed up this work, which is now more than 20,000 cases of women who have not been tried,” read the post.
