I am certain that with all the combined efforts, the remaining 13 women will be released at their appeal trial later this month.
There is nothing that can justify their imprisonment and we must collectively continue to stand for freedom of expression, the right to land tenure and the demand for fair compensation and the end of economic land concessions that put destroy lives.
Sec. Clinton personally received the thumb-printed petition from you all and strongly raised her concern for the women and their families. The release of the women is high on Sec. Clinton’s agenda.
We need to push forward for elections that are conducted with international standards and for the will of the people to be counted so we do not have to rely on Sec. Clinton or any foreign officials to act on our behalf. Only when Cambodia is ruled by law can justice be served and those who have no voice now will have a voice in the future.
