An online petition launched on Tuesday by the outlawed main opposition party calling for investigations into extrajudicial killings in Cambodia, and foreign visa sanctions and the freezing of assets of Prime Minister Hun Sen and others has gained more than 400 signers, with goals of half a million signatories.
The Change.org petition from the dissolved CNRP highlights the murders of five individuals dating back to the late 1990s, including slain political analyst Kem Ley, who was shot dead four years ago last Friday.
“We demand justice through independent investigations of these killings. There will be no real peace until we create an end to impunity together,” the petition states.
