Analysts have questioned whether the “The Cambodia Democracy Act of 2019” bill would be passed by the US Senate and finally signed off by the president after its approval by the lower chamber, the House of Representatives, on Monday.
Introduced by Republican Representative for Florida Ted Yoho, the bill aims to block the US assets of “each senior official of the government, military or security forces of Cambodia who has directly and substantially undermined democracy in Cambodia”.
It also plans visa sanctions restricting the entry of those targeted into the country.
