Cambodia’s foreign ministry has lashed out at an Australian-Khmer lawyer and political activist after he claimed Cambodian rice exports to Australia were a violation of human rights.
It comes amid Australian efforts to pass a law to punish human rights offenders. The law was supported by Sawathey Ek, a Sydney-based lawyer and spokesperson for the Cambodian Action Group.
Sawathey Ek wrote to the Australian trade minister alleging that the export of Cambodian rice to Australia had violated human rights.
