10 October 2013- The Kingdom of Cambodia continues to be an example in the fight against death penalty and can be legitimately proud of the way it has drawn the lessons from the past and became a respected regional abolitionist, both by law and by conviction. At the occasion of the 11th World Day against the Death Penalty, the Delegation of the European Union in Cambodia and the Cambodia Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights commend the strong commitment of Cambodia to the abolition of the death penalty, and encourage the Kingdom to further lead the way on this issue, both domestically and at ASEAN level.

What the hell is this? Cambodia is to abolish Death Penalty? It seems that nobody has the right to kill Cambodian people...wrong! Hun Sen Vietcong slave puppet government kills Cambodian people everyday by his police and by his corruption. What about Siem thugs and they continue to kill Cambodian people along the border! .....Stop talking about Cambodia in abolition of death penalty which only to soften Ah Hun Sen Vietcong slave image....Make no doubt that as long as Ah Hun Sen continue to stay in power and he is a dictator, a killer, and a traitor to Cambodian people.
