UN’s Subedi to arrive for last Cambodia trip

Human rights envoy Surya Subedi will arrive for his 12th and final official visit to Cambodia as the United Nations’ special rapporteur on Saturday, the UN said yesterday, ahead of the end of his term in March.

“In my last mission to the Kingdom, I will focus on the progress achieved towards making state institutions independent, with particular reference to legal and judicial reform,” Subedi said in a statement yesterday.

On Tuesday, a group of NGOs called on Subedi to raise concerns over two large hydropower projects – the Stung Cheay Areng and Lower Sesan II dams – with Prime Minister Hun Sen during his visit.

Government officials could not confirm that a meeting between Hun Sen and Subedi would take place, while the UN said they were “expected” to meet during the nine-day mission.
