Rule 130
Carmen Avram (S&D)

 Subject:  Report on second monitoring mission to Cambodia to assess the human rights and labour rights situation — follow-up to Written Questions P-000255-19 and E-004666-18
 Answer in writing 

The EU mission(1) objectives(2) were to monitor and check major issues of concern in Cambodia, including the potential violation of political rights, freedom of expression (also online), freedom of association, and of the right to organise(3) and to collective bargaining, as well as the dispossession of families caused by economic land concessions (ELCs), particularly in the sugar sector.

Can the Commission please provide a clear answer to the following questions:
1. Who did the EU representatives meet from among the Cambodian government officials, NGOs, civil society and political opposition representatives?
2. Did the EU representatives officially request to visit and manage to meet Kem Sokha, who is under house arrest?
3. When will the Commission report back to Parliament and publish its assessment of the latest situation, and when will the final decision(4) on EBA(5) tariff suspension(6) be taken?
