CHRC discusses human rights with ASEAN, EU

The Cambodian Human Rights Committee (CHRC) and their ASEAN and EU counterparts met in the Indonesian capital Jakarta on October 24 for talks to strengthen cooperation.

The 4th ASEAN-EU dialogue, held from October 24-26, was led by CHRC vice-president Chin Malin on behalf of CHRC president Keo Remy, who is the rotating chair of the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR).

Malin said delegates from ASEAN, EU, civil society and national human rights institutions (NHRIs) took part in the three-day consultative dialogue.

The CHRC vice-president delivered the opening remarks as well as led and coordinated the consultative talks on topics related to human rights in the two regions and on the possibility of further cooperation between ASEAN and the EU.

Malin also met with EU Special Representative for Human Rights Eamon Gilmore to discuss general aspects of the human rights situation and law enforcement in Cambodia and to strengthen cooperation in the area of human rights in Cambodia and the EU.

“These are just the preliminary findings; a detailed inventory of the contents of the ASEAN-EU dialogue will be announced when the dialogue concludes,” Malin said.
