Report shows persistent restriction of fundamental freedoms

A report released this week analyzing the state of fundamental freedoms in Cambodia showed the ongoing restriction of the freedom of association and freedom of expression between April 2019 and March 2020, noting a continued crackdown on political dissent and the silencing of free speech.

The fourth annual report, conducted from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020 by the Fundamental Freedoms Monitoring Project (FFMP) and released on July 29, was compiled by analyzing media articles and incident reports, and carrying out polls and surveys of civil society groups, trade unions, and the public.

FFMP is a joint initiative by local civil society groups the Cambodian Center for Human Rights, Adhoc, and the Solidarity Center, in cooperation with the International Center for Not-For-Profit Law.
