Visiting EU MPs have full agenda

A group of European Union parliamentarians will arrive in the Kingdom today to “study and research” the organisation of elections, the resolution of land disputes, democratic development and EU development projects, according to a statement issued by the National Assembly yesterday.

The three-day trip will see the seven lawmakers meet with Interior Minister Sar Kheng and Deputy Prime Minister Sok An, among others.

“Important points that [they] can discuss with us and have been discussed [with us] before are the political situation, upholding human rights and people being affected by projects supported by the EU,” Vun said.
Mu Sochua, public affairs head at the opposition CNRP, said her party was meeting the EU lawmakers on Thursday.

The EU, which recently held a high-level policy dialogue with Cambodia, has been under increasing pressure to address land grabbing by sugar firms taking advantage of the bloc’s trade preference programs.
