Cambodia rejects UN report on human rights situation

Cambodia has rejected a United Nations (UN) report criticising the situation of human rights in the country, saying it does not have sufficient basis.

On Monday, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights Mary Lawlor expressed concerns about tightening restrictions on civil society in Cambodia.
