Cambodia’s Democracy in Shambles Ahead of July Elections

On June 12, the U.S. Treasury took a notable step: sanctioning Cambodian General Hing Bun Hieng for his complicity in serious human rights abuses. It was the first time that a Cambodian official has been sanctioned under America’s Global Magnitsky Act.

Bun Hieng’s designation came just prior to the Cambodian elections, slated for July 29. Those elections are expected to usher in another five-year term for Cambodia’s ruling leader Prime Minister Hun Sen, the head of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP).
