Rights groups wary of Cambodia 'reforms'

Activists say government is using legislation to cut freedoms and crack down on dissent.

    Cambodia's government has drafted two laws aimed at regulating the growing number of trade unions and non-governmental organisations in the country.

    Human rights groups say the proposed legislation undermines rather than promote civil liberties and have called for the laws to be scrapped.
