Victorian Labor MP Julian Hill has urged Australia to “get real” in its approach to Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen, accusing the leader of “taking the piss” on human rights and political dissent.
Mr Hill delivered his searing appraisal in a speech to Parliament on the eve of the anniversary of the Paris Peace Accords, which brought an end to Cambodia’s long civil war.
The remarks also came ahead of a meeting between members of the Cambodian community in Australia and MPs in Canberra on Wednesday. The group organised the meeting to bring attention to the anniversary.
