CAMBODIA is unlikely to meet its 2010 deadline for the eradication of anti-personnel land mines, according to government officials, who say the sheer number of remaining mines and continuing tensions at the border have affected the country’s ability to meet its obligations under the Ottawa Convention.

At the ninth meeting of the signatories of the 1997 anti-landmine convention, which opened Monday in Geneva, 15 signatories – including Great Britain – announced their failure to meet 2009 deadlines for mine clearance, according to the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL).

SVAY RIENG

most at-risk victims of rape and battery

Educational boards and posters are handed out in Svay Rieng to change people’s attitude towards domestic violence. 

FOR more than a year, a shelter simply called the Safe House has been helping the most vulnerable victims of rape and domestic violence in Svay Rieng province, where, like most areas outside the capital, social services are limited.

“There has been a big difference [since we opened]. Now, we can help these women with full security, and they do not have to feel afraid,” said Nget Thy, project manager at the Cambodian Centre for the Protection of Children’s Rights, the organisation that runs the Safe House.

 The idea for the Safe House, which is located at an undisclosed address, was born after an original open-door shelter proved unable to protect victims from their abusers.

“When we received victims of rape or domestic violence, the perpetrator would sometimes come and complain and want to take the victim from our shelter,” Nget Thy said.

“Also, brothel owners would pass by and want to get back their former sex workers,” he added.   Continue Reading Finding shelter from the storm…

Sichan Siv, as US ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council in 2004, discusses the US position before walking out to protest a vote giving Sudan a third term on the Human Rights Commission.
Sichan Siv, as US ambassador to the UN Economic and Social Council in 2004, discusses the US position before walking out to protest a vote giving Sudan a third term on the Human Rights Commission.

Sichan Siv was a victim of the Khmer Rouge. Among the nearly 2 million killed under the regime were 15 members of his family. But Siv Sichan has, as they say in Khmer, floating bones: He not only escaped death under the regime but rose to a high-ranking position in the White House.

He arrived for a brief visit to Cambodia this week to discuss his memoir, “Golden Bones,” published earlier this year.

He was appointed in 2001 as US ambassador to United Nation’s Economic and Social Council, having served as deputy assistant to then-president George H.W. Bush in Public Liaison office and as deputy assistant secretary for South Asian affairs, from 1989 to 1993. Continue Reading ‘Golden’ Ambassador Returns With Memoir…
