In an article about the Human Rights Day celebration may I ask you to correct one

error regarding the awards?

Three awards were given by the Cambodian Committee for International Human Rights

Day to:

  1. His Majesty King Norodom Sihanouk for his action in bringing the United Nations

    Covenants and Conventions on Human Rights before the Cambodian Supreme National Council

    and for assisting its adoption as part of the Laws of Cambodia.

  2. The Parliamentary Human Rights Commission for its vigilance in the essential

    tasks of jealously guarding the Rights of the Cambodian people.

  3. The Center for Human Rights for its action in assisting the government, legislation

    and people of Cambodia in their great efforts to maintain and enhance Human Rights.

On behalf of the committee I sincerely thank you for bringing this celebration

to the knowledge of the public by writing a good article about it.

- Kassie Neou, Cambodian Institute of Human Rights
