Cambodia urged to investigate journalists’ deaths
Rights group launches justice campaign for murdered journalists on second UN-backed International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists
By Lauren Crothers
The Cambodian government has been called out for failing to prevent impunity in all but two cases of journalists killed in the country since 1994.
On Monday, the second United Nations-backed International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists, the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR) kicked off a weeklong “Never Forget” campaign to highlight impunity.
The campaign goes beyond the reporters themselves to include “activists, environmentalists, trade unionists, human rights defenders and ordinary citizens throughout the country [who] have had their human rights seriously violated while those responsible remain unpunished."Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
