The present report focuses on an assessment of the independence and capacity of Parliament as one of the State institutions responsible for upholding people’s rights. Parliament in Cambodia has not been able to safeguard the freedom of speech of some of its own members. Furthermore, the doctrine of the separation of powers is weak and Parliament has been regarded as having limited capacity to act as an effective check on the executive. Parliament is the soul of democracy and is responsible for adopting laws required to protect human rights. With this in mind, the Special Rapporteur makes a series of recommendations in the present report in a constructive manner and hopes that the Government, Parliament and other stakeholders will implement them.
