Devant sénateurs affiliés à HUN Sen, N. Sihamoni utilise des vocables vidés de leur sens : sur fond de crise politique très grave où la Constitution est piétinée, la Démocratie anéantie, les Droits de l’Homme sont bafoués et la Justice utilisée par la dictature HunSennienne pour réprimer l’Opposition.
Norodom Sihamoni aurait dû prononcer cet appel devant le Parlement face à HUN Sen contrairement au Sénat qui n’a qu’un rôle d’entérinement des lois.
Pourquoi ce geste inutile?
En tant que Roi, Norodom Sihamoni a des prérogatives qui lui sont attribuées par la Constitution.
U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia Willam Heidt has dismissed claims by Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen that Washington was behind the assassination in 2016 of prominent political analyst Kem Ley as “absurd” and “offensive,” and reiterated calls for an independent investigation into his death.
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.
