UN’s Smith meets with CHRC

The UN Human Rights Council’s (UNHRC) Cambodia monitor Rhona Smith met with the government’s rights body on Tuesday to discuss the situation in the Kingdom.

Smith wrote on Facebook that she had met Keo Remy, president of the Cambodian Human Rights Committee (CHRC), to be updated on the current political and human rights situation and how the CHRC’s work had progressed since her last visit in November.

The Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Cambodia said the meeting also discussed the CHRC’s report to the UNHRC in Geneva last month, its visits to prisons and correctional centres, as well as its efforts to improve conditions in such institutions.
