    Descriptive info: UNICEF has estimated that 89% of 15-24 year olds in Cambodia are literate, and 86% of females in the same age group are (2004 – 2008) indicating a significant increase in access to education.. However, one of the many legacies of the Khmer Rouge period is higher illiteracy levels in Cambodia’s older population due to restricted access, in many cases none at all, to education.. With this in mind, and the fact that it can sometimes be difficult to obtain printed copies of key Cambodian Laws and Legislation, CCHR is in the process of creating audio versions of many of them including:.. • The Constitution of the Kingdom of Cambodia.. • Land Law.. • Criminal Law.. • The Anti-Corruption Law.. • The Law of Appropriation.. As the recordings are completed they will be made available as  ...   Hearings.. LAW ON ANTI-CORRUPTION.. 2012-10-23.. Location: CCHR office.. In this law is understood as extralegal taking, either personally or via intermediaries, of property benefits and advantages by the persons who perform state functions and also persons having equal statute.. Law on Peaceful Demonstration and Implementation Guide.. 2012-10-22.. This law is aimed at determining the organization and functioning of a peaceful assembly in the Kingdom of Cambodia.. The purpose of this law is to assure freedom of expression of Khmer citizens through peaceful assembly, but this right shall not be used abusively affecting the rights, freedoms and honor of others, good customs of the national society, public order and national security.. Constitution of the Kingdom of Cambodia.. 1993-09-21.. This Constitution was adopted by the Constitutional Assembly in Phnom Penh on September 21 1993 at its 2nd Plenary Session..

  • Title: CCHR | Cambodian Center for Human Rights
    Descriptive info: In order to affect change in the degree to which the human rights of all Cambodian people are fully respected and promoted by the Cambodian government, significant legislative, policy and structural reforms are required.. CCHR seeks to work on a policy level analyzing wider trends and underlying causes of human rights violations, and providing recommendations for the reforms that are required in order to ensure an end to human rights violations.. CCHR engages in sustained advocacy for the achievement of these reforms.. Campaigns are an essential element of our advocacy and are one of the strategies through which we seek to encourage the government to strengthen its respect for the human rights of all Cambodian people.. Our peaceful campaigns combine several techniques – demonstrations, letters to members of parliament, petitions, etc.. – that are designed to show the government our disapproval of a particular policy or our demand for a particular reform.. Our campaigns seek to provide ordinary people with an opportunity to contribute to efforts to demand change and to promote human rights.. We have a track record of success in campaigning  ...   celebrations.. AFEC distributed 100,000 yellow ribbons as a symbol of the need to support freedom of expression throughout Cambodia.. The launch of this campaign echoed throughout the world and large numbers of Cambodians wore yellow ribbons to public events sending a clear message to the government that Cambodian civil society did not accept repression against its leading activists.. Assisted by international pressure, AFEC succeeded in securing the release of the human rights activists.. In February 2006, again in our capacity as coordinator of AFEC, we organized a march for freedom of expression that resulted in Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen promising to decriminalize defamation.. While defamation remains a criminal offence, the custodial sentence that previously accompanied it was removed.. From 25 February to 15 March 2007, AFEC organized a 314-kilometre march from Phnom Penh to Angkor Wat for freedom of expression, non-violence and political tolerance in Cambodia ahead of commune council elections..

The situation of freedom of expression in Cambodia is dire.. A recent CCHR coordinated Joint NGO Report,.. 'Cambodia Gagged: Democracy at Risk'.. (Sept 2010), highlights a crackdown by the Royal Government of Cambodia on the expression of opinion deemed critical of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party and Royal Governmenet of Cambodia..

  • Title: CCHR | Cambodian Center for Human Rights
    Descriptive info: Koh Pich bridge, Phnom Penh, scene of the stampede tragedy on the 22 November 2011.. On 22 November 2010, the last day of Cambodia’s annual Water Festival, hundreds of Cambodians were killed on Koh Pich Bridge in Phnom Penh in what is Cambodia’s worst ever peace time tragedy.. Initial reports put the number of dead as high as 456, a number that since been reduced to 350 by the Royal Government of Cambodia in what is being described as a “human stampede”.. Around 400 people were also injured.. The first rumours that spread through Phnom Penh on the night of 22 November were that the bridge had collapsed.. The following morning, a doctor from Calmette hospital explained that a preliminary assessment of the causes of death among the victims he had examined were suffocation and electrocution, a suggestion that was subsequently rejected outright by government spokesmen and denied by Calmette officials notwithstanding statements by numerous victims that they had been electrocuted on the bridge.. Within days, those affected by the tragedy started looking for answers; “we really need the explanation from the government,” said one man whose granddaughters, daughter and nieces had been injured in the tragedy.. Another man, whose sister died on the bridge, expressed his anger at the tragedy and asked whether the “police really did their job? Why did they allow it to happen in the first place?”.. But satisfactory answers to questions like these were never given, and the government quickly drew a line in the sand declaring  ...   speed with which the tragedy was pushed aside and forgotten by officials reflect wider problems in Cambodia of cronyism and the absence of accountability for wealthy and powerful individuals.. The 22/11 Justice Fund was set up to support and facilitate calls by the families of those who died on the bridge, and by those who were injured that night, for justice and to help find answers to the questions the government did not adequately address or seek to find answers for.. Between December 2010 and February 2011, CCHR interviewed over a hundred people about the Koh Pich tragedy, including survivors, victim’s families, doctors and police.. CCHR made radio appeals asking people across the country to provide information about the night to assist in providing a clearer picture of what happened.. In March 2011, CCHR will publish a report setting out the findings of our interviews and comparing those findings to the findings of the government committee that was vested with the authority to investigate the causes of the tragedy on Koh Pich Bridge..
