UN’s Subedi begins fact-finding visit

The United Nations-appointed special rapporteur to Cambodia will embark on a week-long fact-finding mission in the Kingdom today.

Nepalese national Surya Subedi, an expert in internat-ional law from Leeds, England, has announced his mission will focus on economic and other land concessions.

“During this mission, I plan to examine the situation of economic and other land concessions and their impact on the human rights of local communities. I will also look into the role and responsibility of business enterprises in benefiting from land concessions,” Subedi said in a UN press release announcing his visit.

Subedi’s term as special rapporteur to Cambodia was extended by a landmark two years at a meeting of the Human Rights Council in Geneva last year.

This is Subedi’s second  fact-finding mission to Cambodia this year.
