Surya Subedi, the UN’s special rapporteur for human rights in Cambodia, arrived in Phnom Penh on Monday for a two-week mission to the country, said Koy Kuong, spokesman at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Subedi is set to meet Prime Minister Hun Sen for talks this morning, he said, followed by meetings with Ek Sam Ol, head of the Constitutional Council, on Thursday, and Om Yien Tieng, head of the government’s human rights committee, on January 26. “The previous visit by Subedi has promised cooperation which won’t be an attack on the government,” Koy Kuong said. “His visit is to determine the priority in the field of human rights in order to establish a plan to help support the improvement of the human rights situation and the reform of the National Assembly and the judiciary in Cambodia.”
