Human Rights Party

The Interior Ministry has formerly registered Kem Sokha's Human Rights Party, which

now plans to spend $90,000 on its first party congress at Phnom Penh's Olympic Stadium

on July 22. Kem Sokha said some 20,000 people would be invited to the party's opening

congress. Sokha said funding for the party had come from Cambodians in the US and

Canada. But the Cambodian Human Rights Action Committee said the new party should

change its name to avoid confusing the public into thinking that independent rights

groups have political agendas.
