NGO Was Turned Away From Heng Pov

LICADHO, a prominent human rights organization was denied access to see Heng Pov in Prey Sar’s prison, a representative confirmed Friday.

The former police commissioner has been detained in Cambodia’s prison since December 21, following Malaysia's authorities' decision to send him back to his homeland.

LICADHO's director, Pung Chhiv Kek tells VOA Khmer that her organization has legal rights to visit inmates in Cambodia’s prisons. To date, her organization has yet to receive permission from the Ministry of Interior.
