Phnom Penh, 04 June 2021 – In light of the recent reports of Covid-19 cases within Cambodian prisons, we, the undersigned trade unions and civil society organizations, reiterate our call to the Royal Government of Cambodia (“RGC”) to release all prisoners of conscience detained in the Kingdom. Prisoners of conscience are persons imprisoned for the peaceful expression of their political, social, religious, or other conscientiously held beliefs, or for their identity. Almost all of the prisoners of conscience imprisoned in Cambodia have faced the same accusations and charges of incitement.
