Impunity means "without punishment" or "without consequence." In the Kingdom of Cambodia (“Cambodia”), perpetrators of human rights violations, often individuals well connected to the authorities, regularly go unpunished and victims never see justice. This culture of impunity directly threatens the rights to truth,1 justice and remedy,2 and promotes fear that stifles the right to freedom of expression.
