On the occasion of the international Right to Truth Day – 24 March 2014 – the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (“CCHR”) launched its new “Where Is My Justice?” campaign and called on all partners and supporters to join CCHR in demanding truth and justice for victims of violence by security forces in the Kingdom of Cambodia (“Cambodia”).

Immediately following the contested National Assembly Elections, which took place on 28 July 2013, Cambodian people were able to exercise their right to freedom of assembly in an unprecedented manner. However, on 15 September 2013, security forces resorted to their old tactics and have since repeatedly and disproportionately used excessive force to crack down on protesters. The post-election violence has already led to the death of six persons, the disappearance of at least one individual and to dozens of injured. However, while protesters have been arrested and arecurrently facing charges, an independent investigation into the excessive use of force by Cambodian security forces has yet to take place.
