Kingdom of Cambodia: time for action on human rights

Amnesty International is concerned that the Royal Cambodian Government has yet to take human rights seriously, and that it has failed to live up to the many commitments it has made on this issue in the last four years. This document details some of the organization’s concerns relating to the events of 5-6 July 1997, and why government statements regarding human rights should be viewed critically. This report draws in part on observations made by an Amnesty International delegation during a visit to Phnom Penh in September 1997. The organization regrets that, despite an official invitation, Cambodian ministers (with the exception of one) avoided discussions on human rights concerns.
