E-002229/2019(ASW)
Answer given by Ms Malmström on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-002229/2019

An EU monitoring mission visited Cambodia from 3 to 10 June 2019 to assess the human rights and labour rights situation, under the formal temporary procedure launched on 11 February 2019(1). The mission met government authorities, international organisations, trade unions, business organisations, civil society, and the embassies of EU Member States and of third countries. The meetings were held to hear views from various stakeholders and from all sides of the political spectrum.

A meeting with Kem Sokha was neither officially requested by the monitoring mission nor did such a meeting take place.

The temporary withdrawal procedure will be concluded by 12 February 2020 and by then the decision on whether or not to withdraw trade preferences will be taken. The Commission stands ready to debrief the European Parliament.
