Rhona Smith, the UN Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) Special Rapporteur for Cambodia, met with a senior Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) official to learn about the agency’s methods and progress, and urged the government to step up its fight against corruption.
In her meeting with ACU vice-president Kheang Seng, Smith was also updated on Cambodia’s progress in meeting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and implementing the Rectangular Strategy for Growth, Employment, Equity and Efficiency.
“The government explained to us what it is doing to combat corruption in Cambodia so it can promote the Rectangular Strategy and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.”
