UN Reviews Human Rights and Land Grabbing Situation in Cambodia

Cambodia’s human rights record comes under review at the UN Human Rights Council today as part of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process.

LICADHO contributed to two joint submissions with the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and Forum-Asia which catalogue state repression of human rights defenders, media and civil society, as well as the human cost of rampant land grabbing.

The submissions provide concrete examples illustrating how Cambodia’s human rights situation has deteriorated to a record low – arguably the worst in two decades with the ongoing suppression of civil and political rights and the closing of civil society space.

Both submissions are available for download here:

Joint submission prepared by FIDH (International Federation for Human Rights) and the Cambodian League for the Promotion and Defense of Human Rights (LICADHO) to the 32nd Session of the Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) – Human Rights Defenders and civil society space.
