Cambodian human rights groups continue to demand justice for murdered analyst Kem Ley

Supporters are demanding officials reopen the murder investigation.

Religious ceremonies were held in Cambodia to commemorate the sixth anniversary of the death of prominent political analyst Kem Ley.

Kem Ley was killed at a gas station on July 10, 2016, in Phnom Penh. Many suspect the murder was linked to his work as a commentator and political analyst. He was murdered days after he gave a radio interview about a Global Witness report detailing corruption under the Hun Sen government, which has ruled the country since 1985.

Since 2016, civil society groups have been calling on officials to properly investigate the murder and determine the person(s) behind the killing.
