Professor Surya Subedi has term extended by UN Human Rights Council

9 October 2013 |

Professor Surya Subedi, who is a UN human rights envoy for Cambodia has had his term extended by the UN Human Rights Council for a period of two years.

Professor Subedi comments: "The renewal of my mandate as one of only 10 country-specific UN mandate holders in the world, for two more years by consensus within the UN Human Rights Council, would provide me stability in implementing my mandate  for the protection and promotion of human rights in Cambodia; which is going through a process of transition from a troublesome past including the atrocities committed during the Khmer Rouge years led by Pol Pot."
