Petition to the Secretary General of the United Nations

His Excellency António Guterres, Secretary General of the United Nations;

We, the undersigned, request your urgent intervention for the safe repatriation of Sam Rainsy, Acting President of the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) and his colleagues to Cambodia on November 9, 2019.

Just a month ahead, the violent rhetoric from Prime Minister Hun Sen of Cambodia is ominous: shelling heavy weapons, dispatching troops along the border, and shooting Rainsy’s airplane etc. Over 250 CNRP’s activist members are either accused by the court or extrajudicially detained by authorities. Kem Sokha, President of the CNRP, has been in detention two years (the first year in jail; the second year under “house arrest”), the CNRP was dissolved by order of the court prior to the general election in 2018. Hun Sen stole the seats of Member of Parliament and Commune Councillors whom people voted for them, and banned 108 Cambodian citizen from involvement in politics.

These actions are unconstitutional and violating the Paris Peace Agreement of 1991 as well as international covenant on civil and political rights Cambodia has ratified.

With Paris Peace Agreement and the mandates of the United Nations, we ask that your excellency intervene to prevent a deadly confrontation from November 9, 2019 onward.

The October 23, 1991 Comprehensive Cambodian Peace Agreement referred to as the Paris Agreement.

The Paris Agreement consists of:
· The Final Act of the Paris Conference on Cambodia;

· Agreement on the Political Settlement of the Cambodia Conflict;

· Agreement Concerning the Sovereignty, Territorial Integrity and Inviolability, Neutrality and National Unity of Cambodia

· Declaration on the Rehabilitation and Reconstruction of Cambodia.

This Paris Peace Agreement provided provisions to promote national reconciliation and to ensure the exercise of the right of self-determination of the Cambodian people through free, fair, and transparent elections. In addition, they provide for a ceasefire and cessation of outside military assistance and for the withdrawal of foreign forces from Cambodia. They also deal with Human Rights protection including the voluntary return of refugees and displaced persons and delineate the Mandate of the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC).

On its 26th Anniversary, we, the Cambodian people of both domestic and abroad wish to collect one million signatures and send them to the party signatures countries of Paris Peace Agreement-Cambodia. The eighteen (18) countries included the French and the Indonesian Foreign Minister acted as co-Presidents. Also participating in his official capacity was the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Especially, the five permanent members of the Security Council: China, France, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States. We, the Cambodian people need to remind them that, Mr. Hun Sen is breaching and violating this Paris Peace Agreement; it is unacceptable! Therefore, we, the Cambodian people needed the party signatures countries more than ever to enforce the Paris Peace Agreement. The Dictatorial politics led by Mr. Hun Sen in Cambodia violated all the provisions in the Paris Peace Agreement. Cambodian people need your immediate intervention. Otherwise, Cambodia and her people will never live in with dignity, grace, and integrity.


We condemn, in the strongest terms, the calculated and systemic crackdowns on Democracy– 1991 Paris Peace Accords, Opposition Parties, Non-governmental organizations, Unions, and Independent Media, ahead of the upcoming Senate election on January 14, 2018 and general parliamentary election on July 29, 2018. These recent political developments are strangling Cambodia’s fledgling democracy.
