Montagnard outcry

Human Rights Watch criticized the Cambodian government September 25 for sealing its

border with Vietnam to ethnic minority asylum seekers, and accused Phnom Penh of

deporting more than 400 Montagnards since April. The US-based organization urged

that donors make sure Cambodia respects its obligations under international law and

provides asylum. HRW also called on the UN refugee agency to re-establish its field

offices in the country's north-east. Around 1,000 Montag-nards who fled to Cambodia

last year were allowed to resettle in the US earlier this year.
