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.
Honda, who still plays professional football in Australia, accepted the role of Cambodia national team coach in August, appearing at a press conference with Cambodia Football Federation president Sao Sokha.
The statement presented by government spokesman Phay Siphan said the Cambodian government rejected the accusations levelled against Sao Sokha.
