Viets denied refuge

The Cambodian government has been criticized for refusing to consider asylum application

from 24 Vietnamese indigenous tribal people detained in early March in Mondolkiri.

Prime Minister Hun Sen stated on March 26 that he would not grant the group refugee

status. The Cambodian government has also refused the UN access to the 24 pending

completion of a separate Cambodian government investigation into the circumstances

of the group's entry into Cambodia and their activities here. Khmer Institute for

Democracy Executive Director Lao Mong Hay describes the government stance as contrary

to "the rule of law and humanity".
