Government hits back at HRW Sokha accusations

The government on Friday responded to comments made by Human Rights Watch (HRW) criticising Cambodia national football team coach Keisuke Honda’s links to “world-class human rights abuser” Sao Sokha.

The statement presented by government spokesman Phay Siphan said the Cambodian government rejected the accusations levelled against Sao Sokha.
