Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.
Earlier this year, the rights council made 205 recommendations to Cambodia, which â€œnotedâ€ 38 of them and accepted 163.
The rejected recommendations are a repeal of a criminal defamation code in the press law; ensuring the right to education to children, including Vietnamese; combating discrimination; and doing more to address school dropouts.
So lets address these as a list:
repeal of a criminal defamation code in the press law
Of course... that's the ruling party's #1 goto when they get called out on their bullshit. especially now that they've given the opposition a station.
ensuring the right to education to children, including Vietnamese
For all the criticism about the CNRP being racist/etc in their words, especially from the CPP... the ruling government repeatedly displays it in their actions.
doing more to address school dropouts
Or just basic truancy. When the malls are full of teenage kids in the middle of the afternoon all decked out in their school clothes something's seriously wrong.
To be fair there's a difference between school dropouts and kids skipping class... Plus, the majority of those kids at the mall aren't even skipping class... The first step would be to have them study a full day instead of the current half days. Not only would they (hopefully) learn more, it would also reduce traffic at lunch time.
