Cambodia's government has been getting away with murder.This followed deadly violence against unarmed demonstrators protesting last year's deeply flawed national election, won, yet again, by Prime Minister Hun Sen's ruling Cambodian People's Party, which has dominated political life for more than three decades.The recent killings repeat a pattern of political violence that has recurred too often at crucial moments in Cambodia's history – even after the 1991 Paris Peace Agreements, which were intended to bring not only peace, but also democracy and human-rights protection to the country's people. Cambodia's record on democracy and human rights since the Paris Peace Agreements has not been a good one.A credible new opposition party – the Cambodia National Rescue Party – has emerged under Sam Rainsy (who looks a little more like a national leader now than just a monochromatic anti-Vietnamese crusader), gaining significant popular support.It is time for Cambodia's political leaders to be named, shamed, investigated and sanctioned by the international community.
