PM accuses Human Rights Watch of double standards, for failing to criticise the United States

Recommended Posts

Prime Minister Hun Sen lashed out at Brad Adams of the Human Rights Watch for failing to criticise the United States on their human rights violation and cracking down on protesters. Speaking during a meeting with civil servants in Preah Sihanouk province on Monday, Mr Hun Sen was confounded that Brad Adams, executive director of the Asian division of Human Rights Watch, is staying silent about human right violations when the United States has used force to arrest protesters to protect public order.

 

“When Cambodia took measures to stop the demonstrators to maintain public order, they accused Cambodia of violating human rights by depriving the right to freedom of expression of the protesters,” said Mr Hun Sen. “But why is Brad Adams now remaining silent when a democratic country [US] is using force to quell the protesters?” “All human rights in the world is gone. Why are they silent?” he asked.

 

“The cracking down on protesters in the United States is a serious issue, and if Brad Adams does not talk about human rights, he is not human,” Mr Hun Sen. AFP reported about a thousand National Guard soldiers were mobilised on Saturday as violent protests over the death of an unarmed black man during an arrest in Minneapolis erupted across the United States.

Hun Sen is right though, why hasn't Adams spoken out?

Simple, no crackdown on peaceful protesters. Now looters, thieves and organized outside anarchist agitators, thats a different story. Bury them under the jail.
