In a statement released one day before the fourth anniversary of the killing of the prominent human rights defender, 30 organizations including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Licadho, Adhoc and the Cambodian Center for Human Rights called for an independent Commission of Inquiry to conduct an effective investigation into Kem Ley’s death.

“We, the 30 undersigned organizations, will continue our call for an independent, impartial, effective, and thorough investigation into Kem Ley’s killing until all those responsible are brought to justice,” the statement said.
