This month's newsletter covering July 2023 focuses on the results of the general elections in which the Cambodian People's Party secured a victory after the National Election Committee denied the registration of the opposition Candlelight Party. It also reports the conclusion reached by The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention stating that Cambodian-American human rights advocate and lawyer Seng Theary was arbitrarily detained under human rights law. Finally, this newsletter covers the decision made by the authorities to block the websites and social media pages of several media outlets ahead of the general election.
