EU to mark rights day

THE European Union will hold a human rights forum with students from the University of Cambodia today to mark International Human Rights Day, said Poun Pok, a spokesman for the EU delegation to Cambodia. “We will allow five students to share their own perceptions related to human rights inside and outside Cambodia, and then EU spokesmen will give a presentation about human rights,” she said. A total of 250 government and civil society figures are expected to attend the EU’s Human Rights Day celebrations, she said.
