Subedi will meet with high-level government officials, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said yesterday.

Despite Subedi delivering a damning report to the Human Rights Council in Geneva in September on a polarised parliament and its strangulation of human rights in Cambodia, the government has welcomed Subedi back for an extended two-year mandate.
