Slain activist Chut Wutty sought justice and transparency in a country that is too often thwarted by corruption and cruelty.

A pro-active environmentalist, Chut Wutty was recognised for his work in Prey Lang and for the Natural Resources Protection Group.

He was on the forefront of investigating illegal logging in Cambodia: a brutal business destroying the livelihood of local communities, rendering them destitute and distraught.

Chut Wutty was gunned down on April 26, 2012.

His body has been laid to rest.
