Though Cambodia had four years to implement 91 recommendations on how to improve its human rights record, U.N. member states still had to push for action in a number of key areas during its second Universal Periodic Review hearing in Geneva on Tuesday. In a speech to the Human Rights Council in Geneva, Mak Sambath, vice-chair of the governmentís Human Rights Committee, admitted that it was unclear exactly how many of the 91 recommendations made in 2009 have actually been implemented, and conceded that reforms have yet to be carried out on the electoral process and judicial system.
