Translated from Khmer by Socheata

The spokesman of the Ministry of Interior (MoI) issued a statement reacting against Brad Adams, the executive director of Human Rights Watch Asia who criticized the living condition of prisoners jailed in government institutions, of using rude words when he compared the living conditions of prisoners in Cambodian jail to be similar to the living conditions of dogs. The statement said that Brad Adam’s words are a severe scorn on prisoners and convicts, and that he did not use a language worthy of a human rights activist. The MoI statement considers Brad Adams view as that of a bias and revengeful person.
