Gov’t responds to UN human rights report

Officials said they would implement some but not all of the recommendations put forth at the 42nd session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on September 25 by special rapporteur Rhona Smith.

Chin Malin, the spokesperson for the Cambodia Human Rights Committee, told The Post that the authorities would likely not apply several “politically motivated” recommendations including the release of Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) president Kem Sokha and reinstating former CNRP commune and district councillors to their seats.

While the Kingdom welcomed the recommendations and “many” were being considered by the government, Malin said Cambodian lawmakers would have the final say in whether they are to be instituted.
