Human Rights Watch released a sizzling report today that details the Hun Sen regime’s three-decade history of extrajudicial killings, and shows that the culprits have been rewarded with high-ranking government positions. The document starts out with “A-Team” death squads in the 1980s and the signing of the 1991 Paris Peace Agreement, and concludes with the shooting of environmental activist Chut Wutty last April
More to highlight:
But this isn’t your typical, titular ASEAN meeting. Barack Obama will be the first US president to attend the summit in Phnom Penh next Monday and Tuesday, and HRW is raising the issue just as international eyes are, in a rarity, on Cambodia.
