The voting on the law in the Cambodian Parliament took place today. Very regrettably, the law was passed unchanged, despite increasing criticism. All 67 deputies present from the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) supported it and the 31 opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) delegates voted against it.

There are now rapidly growing numbers of media reporting on the fact that the law has been passed as well as growing coverage of the peaceful protests, met by violence, that took place close to the National Assembly.
