Yash Ghai releases report

The UN's Human Rights Council heard allegations in Geneva on June 12 that Cambodia's

authorities and wealthy elite have continued to flout the King-dom's laws and have

increasingly concentrated land in their own hands. Yash Ghai, Cambodia's UN Rapporteur

on Human Rights, told the newly formed 47-nation council that "concerns raised

over the past decade remain the same today." Ghai's report stated that the government's

policy of granting economic land concessions had lead to 14.5 percent of the Kingdom's

arable land being concentrated in the hands of the elite, resulting in a "devastating

impact on non-indigenous communities and indigenous communities alike."
