Prime Minister Hun Sen has again publicly chastised the UN human rights envoy to Cambodia, Mr. Yash Ghai, who in the past has strongly criticised the Cambodian government for its human rights records.

In a speech during a meeting on Thursday Mr. Hun Sen has reiterated that all the issues that the UN envoy had raised about Cambodia are all happening in his own country and that Mr. Yash Ghai should solve the problems of human right violations in his native country rather than giving advice to Cambodia.

The prime minister said: “Please look! In Mr. Yash Ghai’s country, it is full of problems but he still preach to us. There are all sorts of problems in his native Kenya but he still preach to us on human rights. Now the bad Karma had spread very quickly. We all pray that the crisis in Kenya would end but it does not matter how hard everybody pray, it still didn’t end. The killings still continue, including the burning of people alive. It is his problems and he compared Cambodia’s issues to those problems. I don’t pray that his country suffers Karmic misfortunes but it is best that he go to solve the crisis in Kenya instead.”
