Statement of the Deputy High Commissioner presenting the annual report of activities of OHCHR-Cambodia to the Human Rights Council

26 September 2013 – I am pleased to introduce the report of the Secretary-General on the role and achievements of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in assisting the Government and People of Cambodia in the promotion and protection of human rights which is A/HRC/24/32 and covers the period between July 2012 and May of this year. During this period, OHCHR continued to work with the Government and the people of Cambodia in a number of key areas such as rule of law; prison reform; fundamental freedoms; land and housing rights. And we also expanded our work on the issue of business and human rights. Read the full report in English | Khmer. We hope that Cambodia will embark, as promised, on an ambitious programme to reform of some of its key institutions which are fundamental for the promotion and protection of human rights, including the judiciary and the National Assembly. OHCHR will continue to remain fully committed to supporting the Government and the people of Cambodia in this important endeavour. Read the statement in English.

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years.
