Cambodia: ICJ submission to the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

The ICJ is concerned by the Government’s participation in – and failure to protect its people from – forced evictions.

In its comments on the Initial Report of Cambodia on the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the ICJ also drew attention to the harassment and absence of protection for human rights defenders who focus on economic, social and cultural rights, particularly those working on housing and land rights.

It also urged the Government to ensure and guarantee the independence and impartiality of judiciary, unhindered access to justice and the right to a remedy for victims of human rights violations.
