Joint statement ADHOC, CCHR, CCIM, CLEC, STT and LICADHO condemn violence against MPs

ADHOC, CCHR, CCIM, CLEC, STT and LICADHO strongly condemn yesterday’s violence outside the National Assembly, and at the house of an opposition leader that left two opposition CNRP MPs injured and bloodied, and call for an immediate independent and transparent investigation into the orchestrated violence. We further express deep concerns over the lack of police action to control a related gathering in front of Kem Sokha’s house, which was surrounded yesterday afternoon by several hundred individuals, some of who threw rocks at the front gates while others were heard calling for even further violence.

Please find below the  full version of the joint statement in both English and Khmer.
