#USA : Mesures de restriction de Visas prises par les Etats-Unis contre HUN Sen et son gouvernement

Visa Restrictions on Individuals Responsible for Undermining Cambodian Democracy

Press Statement

Heather Nauert 
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
December 6, 2017

As the White House stated in a November 16, press statement, the United States is taking concrete steps to respond to the Cambodian government’s actions that have undermined the country’s progress in advancing democracy and respect for human rights. These actions—which run counter to the Paris Peace Agreements of 1991 that ended a tragic conflict and accorded the Cambodian people democratic rights—include the dissolution of the main opposition political party and banning of its leaders from electoral politics, imprisonment of opposition leader Kem Sokha, restriction of civil society, and suppression of independent media.

In direct response to the Cambodian government’s series of anti-democratic actions, we announce the Secretary of State will restrict entry into the United States of those individuals involved in undermining democracy in Cambodia. In certain circumstances, family members of those individuals will also be subject to visa restrictions.

We call on the Cambodian government to reverse course by reinstating the political opposition, releasing Kem Sokha, and allowing civil society and media to resume their constitutionally protected activities. Such actions could lead to a lifting of these travel restrictions and increase the potential for Cambodia’s 2018 electoral process to regain legitimacy.

We will continue to monitor the situation and take additional steps as necessary, while maintaining our close and enduring ties with the people of Cambodia.

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, and Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced a resolution today reaffirming the United States’ commitment to promoting democracy, human rights and rule of law in Cambodia.

The Cambodian Government, led by Prime Minister Hun Sen, has launched a brutal crackdown on political opposition and civil society ahead of national elections scheduled for July 2018. This resolution condemns all forms of political violence in Cambodia, urges the immediate release of opposition leader Kem Sokha, and calls for free, fair, and monitored 2018 elections.

“Despite decades of U.S. and international attention to promote a pluralistic and democratic system, the situation in Cambodia remains dire,” said Chairman McCain. “Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has ruled the country with impunity for over three decades and throughout his rule, Hun Sen has resorted to any and all means to suppress the legitimate political opposition, harass civil society, restrain the media environment, and deny the democratic aspirations of the Cambodian people. This resolution is critical to seeking justice and protecting the basic human rights and freedoms of the Cambodian people.”

“The deliberate undermining of democracy being perpetrated by the Cambodian government must stop,” said Senator Durbin. “We call on Prime Minister Hun Sen and the governing party to respect the rule of law, human rights, and basic democratic norms. The world is watching.”

As of September 13, the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia has discontinued issuing B1, B2, and B1/B2 visas for Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs employees, with the rank of Director General and above, and their families, with limited exceptions.

Under Section 243(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, when so requested by the Secretary of Homeland Security due to a particular country’s refusal to accept or unreasonably delay the return of its nationals, the Secretary of State must order consular officers to suspend issuing visas until informed by the Secretary of Homeland Security that the country in question has accepted the individuals.

If you are subject to this visa suspension and you choose to apply, we will interview you but will not be able to issue a visa until the suspension is lifted. Please consider this carefully before you apply.

Application fees will not be refunded.

#cambodge : Attaques de HUN Sen contre les Etats-Unis : La réaction de l’Ambassadeur Heidt

We join the European Union in calling for Mr. Kem Sokha’s immediate release. The normal functioning of Cambodia’s media market should be restored. Pressure on civil society should cease. And, perhaps most importantly, the government, opposition, and civil society should begin a dialogue about the future of Cambodia’s democracy in an open, respectful, and pressure-free environment.

The U.S. ambassador to Cambodia rejected government accusations of interference by the United States as “inaccurate, misleading and baseless”

“All of the accusations you have heard in recent weeks about the United States – every one of them – are false.”

Heidt called for the release of Kem Sokha, the end to pressure on civil society and for dialogue between the government and opposition to “salvage” elections and restore the bilateral relationship between the countries.

#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.

#cambodge #usa : Loi sur les partis politiques de HUN Sen : Communiqué des Etats-Unis

Statement by the United States on Amendments to Cambodia’s Political Party Law

The United States is deeply concerned about the amendments to Cambodia’s Law on Political Parties passed by the National Assembly on February 20 with little consultation or public debate. The amendments give the government broad authority to restrict freedom of expression and the legitimate activities of political parties and, under vaguely defined circumstances, to dissolve them.

សហរដ្ឋអាមេរិកមានការព្រួយបារម្ភជាខ្លាំង ចំពោះវិសោធនកម្មស្តីពីច្បាប់គណបក្សនយោបាយ នៅកម្ពុជា ដែលត្រូវបានអនុម័ត្តដោយរដ្ឋសភាជាតិ នៅថ្ងៃទី២០ ខែកុម្ភះនេះ ដោយមានការពិគ្រោះ ឬពិភាក្សាគ្នាជាសាធារណ:បន្តិចបន្តួច។ វិសោធនកម្មនេះបានផ្តល់អំណាចយ៉ាងធំដល់រាជរដ្ឋា ភិបាលកម្ពុជា ក្នុងការដាក់កំហិតដល់សេរីភាពក្នុងការបញ្ចេញមតិ និងសកម្មភាពស្របច្បាប់នានារបស់ គណបក្សនយោបាយ ហើយនៅក្រោមកាលះទេសះកំណត់មិនច្បាស់លាស់ណាមួយ គឺរំលាយ គណបក្សនយោបាយតែម្តង។

Cambodia’s Constitution establishes the country as a liberal, multi-party democracy and guarantees its citizens the right to form political parties. Political parties play a critical role in every democracy. They are an important means by which the will of the people is carried out through governance and legislation.

រដ្ឋធម្មនុញរបស់កម្ពុជាបានចែងថា កម្ពុជាជាប្រទេសប្រកាន់យករបបប្រជាធិបតេយ្យ សេរី ពហុបក្ស និងធានាសិទ្ធិពលរដ្ឋរបស់ខ្លួនក្នុងការបង្កើតគណបក្សនយោបាយ។ គណបក្សនយោបាយ ដើរតួដ៏សំខាន់នៅគ្រប់សង្គមប្រជាធិបតេយ្យ។ គណបក្សនយោបាយ ជាមធ្យោបាយដែលឆន្ទះរបស់ ប្រជាពលរដ្ឋត្រូវបានអនុវត្តតាមរយះអភិបាលកិច្ចនិងច្បាប់។

Cambodians can take pride in their country’s development over the past 25 years: Cambodia has held five national elections, and the ongoing voter registration process holds out the prospect of a sixth. Any government action to ban or restrict parties under the new amendments would constitute a significant setback for Cambodia’s political development and would seriously call into question the legitimacy of the upcoming elections.

#usa #tpp : Le Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) est mort

Le TPP est mort ! 

Mais le véritable enjeu d’un traité qui, dès le départ, a laissé Pékin sur la touche, est diplomatique. Le Partenariat transpacifique était au cœur de la stratégie du « pivot » vers l’Asie défendue par M. Obama. Avec l’ambition assumée de contrebalancer l’influence grandissante de la Chine.

Trump signs executive order to withdraw from Trans-Pacific trade deal

 

Ci-dessous la déclaration de J. McCain

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement today on President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP):

“President Trump’s decision to formally withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a serious mistake that will have lasting consequences for America’s economy and our strategic position in the Asia-Pacific region.

“This decision will forfeit the opportunity to promote American exports, reduce trade barriers, open new markets, and protect American invention and innovation. It will create an opening for China to rewrite the economic rules of the road at the expense of American workers. And it will send a troubling signal of American disengagement in the Asia-Pacific region at a time we can least afford it.

“Abandoning TPP is the wrong decision. Moving forward, it is imperative that America advances a positive trade agenda in the Asia-Pacific that will keep American workers and companies competitive in one of the most economically vibrant and fastest-growing regions in the world.”

#diplomatie #chine #usa : J. Kerry en #Chine

Sur trois dossiers, voici en bref les arrangements diplomatiques entre les Etats-Unis et la Chine, pendant la visite de J. Kerry en Chine : 

1 – La Chine a assoupli sa position en acceptant d’aligner sa position sur celle des Etats-Unis sur la non-prolifération nucléaire militaire en Corée du Nord : Une résolution sera présentée au Conseil de Sécurité, avec très probablement des sanctions contre la Corée du Nord.

2 – Les Etats-Unis ont assoupli leur position sur le dossier Chine-Taiwan. J. Kerry semble ne pas contester la politique chinoise d’une Chine Unique. Il a demandé simplement qu’il y ait des discussions, et des négociations pour réduire la tension entre la Chine et Taiwan.

3 – Le conflit dans la Mer de Chine du Sud : Status quo, rien ne change. Les deux parties ont cherché à ne pas envenimer davantage les relations sino-américaines.

#cambodge : Déclaration énergique des Etats-Unis

Déclaration énergique des Etats-Unis condamnant la levée de l’immunité parlementaire de SAM Rainsy

ស្ថានទូត​អាមេរិក ៣០៥

Further Deterioration of Cambodia’s Democratic Environment

Released on November 16, 2015

We are deeply concerned by today’s removal of Cambodian National Rescue Party (CNRP) leader Sam Rainsy from the National Assembly in a unilateral move by the ruling Cambodian People’s Party.  We call on the National Assembly to reinstate him immediately and to restore his parliamentary immunity.  We also call on the government to revoke the arrest warrant issued against Rainsy on seven-year-old defamation charges and to allow him and other opposition Parliamentarians to return to Cambodia without fear of arrest or persecution. 

Today’s actions are the latest incidents of harassment and intimidation of Cambodia’s opposition, including the recent violent attacks against two opposition Members of Parliament and the removal of opposition party deputy leader Kem Sokha from his position as First Vice President of the National Assembly.  These developments are harmful to Cambodian democracy and contrary to the wishes of the Cambodian people. 

We urge the government to take immediate steps to guarantee a political space free from threats or intimidation in Cambodia, and for the government and opposition to engage in serious and meaningful dialogue on actions to strengthen Cambodia’s democratic future.
