PHNOM PENH – Following the filing of a lawsuit against human rights group ADHOC's spokesman, Soeng Senkaruna, for allegedly defaming the Cambodian People's Party (CPP), civil groups are hoping for a fair resolution from the court and calling for closer cooperation with the government to promote and improve human rights in the country.

On Feb. 5, CPP filed a lawsuit against Soeng Senkaruna, asking for a compensation of 2 billion riel (around $500,000) for allegedly making comments that dishonored the party and distorted the truth.
