Fair trial rights are crucially important to the accused in criminal cases. This video provides an introduction to four fair trial rights that are crucial for the Cambodia system: the right to legal representation and to be present at trial, the presumption of innocence, the rights of juvenile defendants and the right to be tried by a free and impartial judge. The video illustrates the pivotal importance of ensuring those rights by depicting a fictional story of a young boy who is wrongly accused of shop-lifting, together with interviews with activists, victims of judicial harassment, lawyers and government officials.

The Rights of Others” is OMCT fourth documentary. Directed by Chris Kelly, it is part of OMCT sponsorship project “Défendre les Défenseurs”. Over the last few years, the Cambodian Government has granted land concessions to private national and international companies at an alarming rate for agriculture, mining, and infrastructure development. Most of these lands were inhabited by farmers and indigenous peoples who have been evicted and relocated to areas without access to basic services. Defending the rights of evicted persons, human rights defenders mobilize against the issuance of land concessions and forced evictions through peaceful demonstrations. In so doing, they are subject to harassment by the involved companies as well as police brutality and arrests.
