UN Special Rapporteur Calls on Gov’t to Respect Democratic Process

Rhona Smith, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Cambodia, on Wednesday called on the government to ensure “full rights of political participation” and warned that human rights could not be sacrificed for the sake of “stability and development.”

Separately, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the high commissioner for human rights, on Wednesday said that he was seriously concerned by developments in Cambodia.

“Since this [Human Rights] Council last met, the Supreme Court has dissolved the principal opposition party, disenfranchising opposition voters. Recently adopted amendments to the Constitution and Criminal Code are likely to further erode political rights and fundamental freedoms,” he said. 

I call on the Government to guarantee the political rights of the people, to respect the freedoms of expression, association and peaceful assembly, and to release human rights defenders and political actors,” he added.

During the session, Special Rapporteur Rhona Smith said that civil society and the opposition faced severe threats.

“Restrictions of the democratic space and undermining of democratic institutions have reached an unprecedented level in Cambodia’s post-1993 history,” she said. “The country seems to be moving inexorably towards a precipice.”

DEATH KNELL FOR DEMOCRACY 

Attacks on Lawmakers and the Threat to Cambodia’s Institutions

In February 2017, Cambodia’s Parliament approved a set of new amendments to the Law on Political Parties, which grant unprecedented powers to the executive and judicial branches to suspend and dissolve parties. The move marked a culmination of nearly two years of escalating persecution of Cambodian lawmakers. These attacks have come in the context of a renewed, broader crackdown on dissent, which has targeted nearly all segments of Cambodian civic life, as well as similar growing threats to other legislators across Southeast Asia.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the ruling party’s efforts to cripple the opposition, in advance of critical commune-level and national elections in 2017 and 2018 respectively, are undermining the fundamental functions and institutions of democratic governance. Addressing persecution and threats against lawmakers, including through revision and clarification of relevant statutes and efforts to ensure all actors adhere to the law, must therefore be a priority for all parties interested in stability, prosperity, and accountability in Cambodia.

The U.S. side is ready to develop relations with China based on the principle of no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, said Tillerson.

“You said that China-U.S. relations can only be friendly. I express my appreciation for this,” Xi said.
“We both believe that China-U.S. cooperation henceforth is the direction we are both striving for. We are both expecting a new era for constructive development,” Xi said.
“We know that through further dialogue we will achieve a greater understanding that will lead to a strengthened, strengthening of the ties between China and the United States and set the tone for our future relationship of cooperation.”

#US DEPARTMENT OF STATE : CAMBODIA 2016 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT

Quietly Released US Rights Report Slams Courts, Corruption

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.

Will the US Withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council?

 
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. 

US DEPARTMENT OF STATE : CAMBODIA 2016 HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT

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.

 

 

Trump administration to propose ‘dramatic reductions’ in foreign aid

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.

 

Rex Tillerson skips State Department’s annual announcement on human rights, alarming advocates

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.

Cambodia: UN experts call for the immediate release of five human rights defenders 

 

The use of criminal provisions as a pretext to suppress and prevent the legitimate exercise of the right to freedom of expression and to silence human rights defenders is incompatible with article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, (ICCPR), which has been signed by Cambodia,said the UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Cambodia, Rhona Smith.

“Cambodia is close to a dangerous tipping point,” Ms. Smith said. “All laws must be applied equally and fairly to all political parties and their members to ensure protection of the democratic space in the run-up to the elections. The political situation, which includes renewed threats, judicial proceedings and even physical beatings of members of the opposition, is worrying.”

#cambodia : Human Rights Day : U.S. AMBASSADOR HEIDT’S STATEMENT

U.S. Embassy Phnom Penh, Cambodia
AMBASSADOR HEIDT’S STATEMENT ON HUMAN RIGHTS DAY
December 10, 2015

“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.” – Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The United States stands with the people of #Cambodia and billions of others around the world in celebration of Human Rights Day. This year’s theme highlights four freedoms – freedom of speech, of religion, from want, and from fear – which underlie the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. While there has been significant progress in advancing these and other fundamental freedoms in Cambodia, more needs to be done in order to safeguard these liberties for all citizens.

When reflecting on the true meaning of freedom – particularly the freedom of speech – I recall a famous quote: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Freedom of expression is not only guaranteed under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; it is also a vital element of the Constitution of the Royal Kingdom of Cambodia. Therefore, I encourage all Cambodians – members of the Royal Government, civil society, and everyday citizens – to work together to ensure that the country’s laws, the media, and the Internet are devices utilized to protect the freedom of expression.

The United States is deeply committed to the protection of the basic freedoms enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As President Obama notes, “Protecting human rights around the globe extends the promise of democracy and bolsters the values that serve as a basis for peace in our world.” As U.S. Ambassador to the Royal Kingdom of Cambodia, I am proud to support the Cambodian people as the country continues to develop a strong and enduring democracy that fully promotes and protects human rights. The U.S. Embassy remains committed to our partnerships with all sectors of Cambodian society to promote freedom and democracy – not only on #HumanRightsDay, but every day.
