The Cambodian Center for Human Rights (“CCHR”) has been conducting trial monitoring since 2009, to observe criminal trials in Cambodian courts and to assess their adherence to international and Cambodian fair trial standards. Since March 2013, CCHR’s Fair Trial Rights Project has been monitoring hearings in the Phnom Penh Court of Appeal. This newsletter is part of a series of newsletters that analyze the findings of CCHR’s monitoring. The present newsletter focuses on the fair trial rights of women defendants, including the right to be presumed innocent, pre-trial detention, the right to be present at trial and the right to legal representation, and the right not to be compelled to confess guilt or to testify against oneself. It includes the data collected by CCHR through trial monitoring conducted in 2021 and a comparison with data collected in previous years. All the data collected is publicly available in our trial monitoring database.
