No simple justice at the khmer rouge tribunal. In fact, it’s a perfect storm,” he wrote. “The court is composed of a combination of Khmer Rouge-era politicians and judges who have spent years as Cambodian soldiers and officials, including a former president who now runs the nation.”
He urged the victims’ families to support the tribunal but urged other citizens and human rights activists to continue calling for an end to “illegal” executions.
“At a time when Cambodia’s human rights are becoming increasingly weak, we all need to put pressure on the government and support a credible investigation, free and fair trials and, in the most extreme cases, just justice,” he said.
He said the case highlighted the dangers of torture.
“Human Rights Watch needs to work even harder to ensure that torture does not take place in Cambodia in the future,” he said.
“Torture is a serious human rights violation, which all human rights organizations should take up in a similar way they address many other abuses.”
But Human Rights Watch said such an investigation could take months, or even years, given ongoing resistance in the Cambodian government to an official investigation, the court and victims’ families.
The U.N. human rights council’s special rapporteur on Cambodia, Nomi Prinsl더킹카지노oo, wrote to the United Nations special rapporteur on torture, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, on Wednesday to say a criminal case, based on evidence obtained through the courts, “should be opened immediat카지노 사이트ely.”
“These cases confirm that torture is very, very bad,” Amnesty International’s international rights chief, Frank Gardner, said in a statement.
Human Rights Watch did not offer any details on how it was possible for the trial to take up the court’s 30-day deadline to decide, but said it has learn더킹카지노ed in the last few weeks that the judge on the case has “made an effort to expedite the investigation.”
