Les conséquences de la politique suicidaire de HUN Sen
commencent à se faire sentir et
deviendront dévastatrices pour l’industrie
de vêtements et de chaussures qui exporte
plus de $6 milliards vers l’Union Européenne et
$3 milliards vers les Etats-Unis.
Les autres piliers de l’économie cambodgiennes
vont connaitre le même sort :
la Construction et le Tourisme !
IL EST TEMPS MAINTENANT
QUE LES INVESTISSEURS VÉREUX
RÉCUPÈRENT LEUR MISE ET
QUITTENT LE CAMBODGE AU PLUS VITE !
Communiqué de l’ EU : Cambodia: reverse the ban on the main opposition party
MEPs urge the Cambodian authorities to reverse their decision to dissolve the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and ban 118 CNRP politicians from politics for five years. They also call for the release of CNRP leader Kem Sokha, arrested on 3 September. MEPs express concern about the general elections scheduled for July 2018, stressing that an electoral process from which the main opposition party has been excluded is not legitimate.
Cambodia currently benefits from EU’s preferential EBA (Everything But Arms) scheme, the most favourable regime available under the EU’s Generalised Scheme of Preferences. If Cambodian authorities do not respect fundamental rights, these tariff preferences must be temporarily withdrawn, say MEPs. They also ask the European External Action Service and the EU Commission to prepare a list of individuals responsible for the dissolution of the opposition and other serious human rights violations in Cambodia, with a view to imposing visa restrictions and asset freezes on them.
Chinese investment in Cambodia was close to $1 billion last year – vastly eclipsing all other nations – while Beijing also provides hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and multi-billion dollar infrastructure loans. More than 60 percent of Cambodia’s garment factories are Chinese owned.
11. Stresses that respect for fundamental human rights is a prerequisite for Cambodia to continue to benefit from the EU’s preferential EBA scheme; calls on the VP/HR and Commissioner Malmström to immediately review Cambodia’s obligations under the conventions in Article 19 of the EBA regulation; Emphasises that if Cambodia is acting in violation of its obligation under the EBA regulation, the tariff preferences it currently enjoys must be temporarily withdrawn;
12. Calls on the EEAS and the Commission to prepare a list of individuals responsible for the dissolution of the opposition and other serious human rights violations in Cambodia with a view to imposing possible visa restrictions and asset freezes on them;
11. souligne que le respect des droits fondamentaux est une condition préalable pour que le Cambodge continue de bénéficier du régime préférentiel «Tout sauf les armes» de l’Union européenne; demande à la VP/HR et à la commissaire Malmström de réexaminer sans tarder les obligations du Cambodge au titre des conventions visées à l’article 19 du règlement sur l’initiative «Tout sauf les armes»; insiste pour que les préférences tarifaires dont bénéficie le Cambodge lui soient temporairement retirées tant qu’il ne se conformera pas à ses obligations au titre de ce règlement;
12. invite le SEAE et la Commission à dresser la liste des personnes responsables de la dissolution de l’opposition cambodgienne et des autres violations graves des droits de l’homme en vue de leur imposer, au besoin, des restrictions de visa et le gel de leurs avoirs;
The vice-chair of the European Union Subcommittee on Human Rights says her union needs to react “very soon” with concrete actions in response to what she characterized as the Cambodian government’s moves to dissolve the country’s main opposition party.
Targeted sanctions or even suspension of preferential access to Cambodia’s biggest export market are among the options the union must consider now, Lochbihler told VOA.
“In Cambodia they could say ‘yes, well we have the support of the Chinese government, why do we care about the EU?’” she said.
“But then if you look clearly, you can see that the EU is the biggest export market for Cambodia. So I think they take this into consideration, and also personally I think if the European Union would go a step further and put specific, targeted sanctions against individuals in the government, governments and representatives of governments are sensitive to this.”
Cambodia exported more than $5 billion worth of products in 2016 to the European Union, which gives the country preferential access to its markets under the Everything But Arms program.
