Cambodia Judicial needs to reform: UN

Ms Arbour- UN official

After five days visit to Cambodia, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Louise Arbour, urged Cambodia must reform its judiciary in order to improve its human rights record.

 

Relations between the UN and Cambodia have been tense following earlier reports criticizing the country’s human rights record.

 

Ms Arbour said, the justice system needed to address its lack of training, independence and integrity. Lack of professional training, insufficient guarantees of independence and lack or perception of lack of integrity are at the heart of what needs to be addresses, both by legislation and by a change of the culture.
