Phnom Penh (FN), Aug. 26 – Cambodian Foreign Ministry spokesperson is utterly dismayed at the End of Mission Statement of Vitit Muntarbhorn, special rapporteur (SR) on the situation of human rights in Cambodia, released on 26 August 2022.

“Despite very limited recognition of the progress and achievements Cambodia has realized, his statement remains largely biased, prejudiced, and unfounded on a number of issues,” according to the statement seen by Fresh News on Friday (Aug 26).

"The SR’s request for Cambodia to activate its counter-measures more strongly on the online scam and human trafficking has been handled long ago. Over the past eight months of this year, at least 890 individuals were rescued while 83 suspects were prosecuted. With the recent establishment of various mechanisms, including the “Operation Leading Committee”, the government remains committed to the timely prevention, suppression, and rescue in close collaboration with all stakeholders.”
