Update from Cambodia’s CSOs on the draft Law on Associations and NGOs

Core group of NGO Law sent letter to development partners to inform about the restrictive freedom of association in Cambodia. PLEASE SEE THE CONTENT BELOW

Dear Development Partners,

The  4th  draft of the Law on Associations and NGOs (LANGO) is confirmed  by the Ministry of Interior (MOI) as being completed and endorsed by its leadership.  We also heard from reliable high level sources of the MOI that:  

·         The 4th draft has been approved by MOI Minister and DPM  subject to very small wording review/comments
·         The MOI will submit a note to the  leadership of the RGC  requesting clearance and budget for large scale meeting with CSOs (MOI intends to use own budget to host this meeting)
·         The meeting may happen in mid-December unless otherwise advised by the leadership of the RGC
·         It is also believed that the MOI may share  the 4th draft publicly 4 days prior to  the consultative meeting

 While we thank the DPs for hearing and sharing our concerns, we feel that it is important that we share with you a briefing note on the perspectives of CSOs on this issue at this critical time of the LANGO processing stage. These perspectives are discussed and prepared by the Core Group on the LANGO as per the attachment. 

We trust this updated information will better inform the DP community about the status of the LANGO and CSO’s perspective on this matter.
