A federal Labor MP has warned Cambodia’s rulers not to intimidate its critics in Australia, while protesters from several South-East Asian communities are demanding the Albanese government take a stronger stance on human rights abuses during the ASEAN-Australia summit in Melbourne next week.

Nine South-East Asian leaders will descend shortly on Melbourne for the meeting with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, along with hundreds of officials, business leaders and academics.
