Group asks envoy to discuss land

Local rights group Adhoc has criticised Surya Subedi, the UN’s special human rights rapporteur to Cambodia, for failing to make land disputes and economic land concessions a priority during his current mission. In a statement Wednesday, the group said “land disputes caused by economic land concessions” had impacted vulnerable families, and urged Subedi to “push the government to solve this issue without delay”. Subedi arrived in Phnom Penh on Tuesday for a 10-day trip, during which he will assess the country’s judicial system.
