The Cambodian government has dismissed a report by the World Justice Project (WJP) that placed the Southeast Asian country second from the bottom in its Rule of Law Index 2021, saying the survey did not reflect the reality on the ground.
Cambodia was ranked 138th out of 139 countries, one ahead of Venezuela. In 2020, the WJP ranked Cambodia at 127 out of 128 countries.
Justice Ministry spokesman Chin Malin said the report had failed to account for Cambodia in an international context during the Covid-19 pandemic.
