Cambodiaís human rights record was assessed Tuesday by the U.N. Human Rights Councilís 47 member states in Geneva, many of which cited concerns about the recent violent suppression of protests by the government, and a judiciary beholden to Prime Minister Hun Senís ruling CPP. The U.N. hearing focused on a set of 91 recommendations put to Cambodia by the Human Rights Council in 2009. This list outlined ways in which Cambodia could improve its human rights record and pointed in particular to improvements needed in areas such as judicial reform, land rights and ratifications of international treaties.
