Deputy opposition leader Kem Sokha yesterday asked Prime Minister Hun Sen to show more flexibility in negotiations in order to break the political deadlock.

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said Tuesday he would not accept a key opposition proposal for members of the country's election body to be endorsed by a two-thirds majority in parliament.

Defendants Not Informed of Rights in Cambodian Appeal Court Cases: Study
Defendants Not Informed of Rights in Cambodian Appeal Court Cases: Study
RFA, 2014-06-24
Judges in Cambodia’s Court of Appeal fail to inform defendants of their rights and a high number of hearings do not even have the defendants or their lawyers present, according to a study by a local rights group. In addition, the quality of evidence presented at the hearing is very poor and threatens the right to be convicted beyond reasonable doubt, and shows that judgments are, in the majority of cases, not based on law or evidence, the Phnom Penh-based Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR) said in its study of more than 200 cases. The findings point to additional concerns in Cambodia’s judiciary, whose functioning has already “been among the major human rights concerns in Cambodia for some time,” the CCHR said in a report. “Although there have been steady improvements in the adherence to some of the procedures that underpin fair trial rights within the Cambodian judiciary, many areas of concern remain,” it said.
