Cambodia NGO law may hamper 'crucial work': US envoy

US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Scott Busby (R) speaks to Cambodian Foreign Minster Hor Namhong in Phnom Penh on June 2, 2015A United States envoy on Tuesday voiced concern that a controversial law set to be passed by the Cambodian cabinet could smother the “crucial work” of non-governmental organisations in the impoverished kingdom. Cambodia is home to hundreds of NGOs and civil society groups who provide key services and support across one of Southeast Asia’s poorest countries. The draft is reported to be the same as an aborted 2011 law, which gave the government sweeping powers to curb the work of NGOs, including by closing them by court order or refusing them registration.
