Rights groups on Wednesday urged the European Union and Japan to consider halting their funding for the election panel in Cambodia, if the ruling party succeeds in a bid to dissolve the main opposition party ahead of next year’s general election.
“At that point, both the EU and Japan should face reality and terminate their financial and technical assistance to avoid lending credibility to what will be a charade of democracy,”

Governments that still insist Cambodia is democratically ruled should act to reverse this development, or share the blame for democracy’s demise under Hun Sen’s autocratic rule.

“Cambodia’s political allies and donors should be publicly alarmed by the outrageous charges Kem Sokha faces and this attack on the democratic process,” Robertson said. “They should put Hun Sen on notice that if he doesn’t reverse course, it will be impossible to consider next year’s elections free and fair.”

“The arrest of opposition leader Kem Sokha early this morning takes the ongoing crackdown by the ruling party in Cambodia to an alarming new level. With national elections on the horizon, it is clear that this is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to crush the opposition before the campaign even starts. For months, we have been witnessing the escalation of government attempts to cripple the opposition, but it appears now that Prime Minister Hun Sen is so afraid of what might happen in a genuine vote, he won’t allow for competition at all.
“Kem Sokha’s arrest is a blatant violation of parliamentary immunity protections under the Cambodian constitution and an affront to the rule of law. He should be immediately and unconditionally released. If members of the international community, including and especially donors, fail to speak up and take action now, they risk ending up complicit in Cambodia’s descent into outright dictatorship.”

Les Elections Communales du 4 Juin 2017
n’ont été ni Libres, ni Équitables !
HRW vient de dénoncer le caractère non libre des élections communales du 4 Juin 2017 qui se sont déroulées dans un climat de menaces et d’intimations venant des autorités au pouvoir. Le caractère non équitable a été également souligné puisque l’accès aux média a été pratiquement monopolisé par le Parti au pouvoir et interdit au Parti d’opposition.

Local elections in Cambodia on June 4, 2017, took place in a threatening environment hostile to free speech and genuine political participation, leading to elections that were neither free nor fair, Human Rights Watch said today. Prime Minister Hun Sen publicly stated that he would be willing to “eliminate 100 to 200 people” if the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) did “not win elections at all stages,” adding to a broader environment of threat and fear against media, political activists, and citizens.
“It is not a democratic election if the ruling party controls all election-related institutions, the media is a de facto organ of the ruling party, and opposition party members face death threats from the prime minister,” said Brad Adams, Asia director at Human Rights Watch. “Under no standards anywhere can an election be deemed free or fair where these kinds of problems exist.”

The U.S. State Department released its annual human rights report on Friday with little fanfare, repeating longstanding past concerns with Cambodia’s judiciary, corruption and intimidation of civil society to an increasingly unreceptive government.
On Monday, President Donald Trump outlined budget proposals that would boost military spending while cutting funding to an array of other programs.
HRW’s Washington Director Sarah Margon reacts:
The world is a lot more complicated than can be seen from a Predator drone or an F-35. A budget that slashes State Department and USAID funding, while further expanding the Pentagon, shows Trump is intent on undermining US government agencies that address pressing human rights issues, most of which are not dealt with by military force.
There are also indications that the Trump budget seeks to cut State Department programs, including those that fund independent media, civil society groups, and the rule of law. Doing so would reverse decades of bipartisan consensus that the United States benefits from a world where executive authority is constrained by these essential checks on democracy.
The most significant human rights problems included a politicized and ineffective judiciary; increased restrictions on freedoms of speech, assembly, and association; and the use of violence and imprisonment–both actual and threatened–to intimidate the political opposition and civil society as well as to suppress dissenting voices.
Other human rights problems included continued prisoner abuse, restrictions on press freedom and online expression, failure to grant equal access and fair treatment to asylum seekers, pervasive corruption, and trafficking in persons.
Reuters and other news outlets reported earlier this week that the administration plans to propose to Congress cuts in the budgets for the U.S. State Department and Agency for International Development by about one third.
“We are going to propose to reduce foreign aid and we are going to propose to spend that money here,” White House Office of Management Budget director Mick Mulvaney told Fox News on Saturday, adding the proposed cuts would include “fairly dramatic reductions in foreign aid.”
The United States spends just over $50 billion annually on the State Department and USAID, compared with $600 billion or more each year on the Pentagon.
Press Statement Rex W. Tillerson Secretary of State Washington, DC March 1, 2017
As the President laid out in his address to Congress, the State Department will continue to engage to advance U.S. interests in the world in cooperation with our partners and allies. We will also continue to support policies and institutions that keep Americans safe, including a robust NATO where Allies meet their responsibilities, an immigration process that vets those coming into our country, and borders/ports of entry that are secure. We will work with allies to counter nations that threaten their neighbors or destabilize their regions. American foreign policy must promote our core values of freedom, democracy, and stability.

During 2016, Prime Minister Hun Sen and his ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) significantly escalated persecution on political grounds, targeting Cambodia’s political opposition, human rights workers, social activists, and public intellectuals on the basis of their real or perceived political opposition to the government and its leader.

A HUN SEN : “ARRÊTEZ la violence contre l’Opposition”
Mr. OBAMA, vous savez ce que vous allez dire aux Dictateurs
YES YOU CAN !
Vous ne faîtes pas de Calcul Politique !
Votre Honneur n’en sortira que grandi en cette fin de Mandat !
Sujets à l’ordre du Jour :
1 – Lundi le 15/02 : Volet économique le TPP. Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei et Malaisie ont déjà signé le TPP.
2 – Mardi le 16/02 : Volet politique focalisé sur le conflit en Mer de Chine du Sud et de la Corée du Nord
Nous espérons que Mr.Obama lors de la discussion de personne à personne aura l’occasion de soulever les questions des Droits de l’Homme en Asie du Sud Est. Obama parlera des Droits de l’Homme et de la démocratie, selon Mr. Rhodes, le conseiller adjoint à la sécurité à la Maison Blanche.

Nominations à la fin du Congrès
Secrétaire Général du Parti : Nguyen Phu Trong
President : Tran Dai Quang
Premier Ministre : Nguyen Xuan Phuc (Vice-PM sous Dung à gauche de Trong sur la photo)
Présidente de l’Assemblée : Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan (Une femme nommée à ce poste)
Newly re-elected Vietnam Communist Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong, center front, flanked by Politburo members Tran Dai Quang, second left, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, second right, and Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, right, at the closing ceremony in Hanoi, Jan. 28, 2016.
La bataille va être saignante !
As delegates gathered in a vast hall under portraits of revolutionary leaders Ho Chi Minh, Marx and Lenin, there were indications that the party old guard would push out pro-market leaning reformers led by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung. “Nguyen Tan Dung’s political career can be declared ‘clinically dead,'” one senior communist party official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AFP.
Since Vietnam’s constitution gives the president plenty of power, including the authority to propose the election and dismissal of all government officials and overall command of the armed forces, Quang could limit the influence of the prime minister if he chooses to exercise his constitutional power. Furthermore, while Dung ranked second in the former Politburo, Phuc ranks only sixth in the the new Politburo. He is not expected to exercise the same amount of power as Dung did.
Trong was ostensibly reelected to preserve the unity of the party, but he is not expected to serve a full term. When he steps down, the Central Committee will elect a replacement. If it chooses to elect Quang as general secretary and allows him to retain his position as state president, it would make him first among equals and facilitate the country’s capability to take quick, timely, and decisive actions.
PM Dung ne serait pas Secrétaire Général du Parti. Ses réformes sont critiquées par le Congrès. Il serait poussé vers la sortie politique. Le parti vire vers la gauche toute, pro-chinoise !
Nguyen Phu Trong (seul candidat) restera le Secrétaire Général du Parti. Le nouveau Premier Ministre sera nommé par l’Assemblée du Peuple plus tard. Ce ne sera pas Dung !
Les Etats-Unis vont perdre un allié de poids dans la Région, surtout dans le conflit de la Mer de Chine du Sud avec la Chine.
Quelles seraient les conséquences de cette secousse politique au Vietnam pour le Cambodge ?
La nouvelle équipe va continuer les réformes entreprises par Dung le Premier Ministre sortant, spécifiquement en ce qui concerne le volet TPP signé par le Vietnam. Dans le domaine de la politique étrangère un équilibre est à trouver dans les relations avec la Chine et les Etats-Unis surtout dans le conflit de la Mer de Chine du Sud.
My age is high, health is limited, knowledge is limited. I asked to step down, but because of the responsibility assigned by the party I have to perform my duty,” “I’m also worried because the upcoming work is heavy.”

“Unless there is an independent investigation and subsequent prosecution of those responsible for this vicious attack, there is every chance such violence will be repeated and perhaps even escalate,” Adams said. “Cambodia’s donors should not only denounce this attack, but they should insist that the ruling party cease the use of violence against its political opponents.”
