The letter refers to the King’s constitutional role as the protector of rights and freedoms for all citizens and as the guarantor of international treaties, stating that the LANGO will, if passed, violate these rights and guarantees.

CCHR’s Analysis and Key Recommendations on LANGO On 5 June 2015, the Council of Ministers approved the fifth draft of the Law on Association and Non- Governmental Organizations (“LANGO”).

Consolidation of Legal Analysis over draft Law on Association and None Government Organization (LANGO) Article 1 of LANGO states its purpose is to guarantee and protect the right to freedom of association, but this draft does not grant any rights to associations and NGOs, except for the right to tax exemption for donations under the Law on Taxation and other laws. Only conditions and a long list of obligations are imposed on the associations and NGOs.

Cambodia: Immediately withdraw draft Law on Associations and Non-Governmental Organizations (LANGO) Forty international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and membership organizations call on the government of Cambodia to immediately withdraw the draft Law on Associations and Non-Governmental Organizations (LANGO).

UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific Annual Report 2014 UN Women Asia-Pacific worked in 2014 across 32 countries regionally in collaboration with governments, civil society organizations, the private sector and the UN system. Our work reached the most marginalized women and girls by tackling stark and rising inequalities and multiple forms of discrimination. We utilized a range of approaches: partnering with governments in their programmes to advance women’s rights; supporting feminist and women’s movements to exert influence in policy decisions; encouraging greater contributions of men as gender equality advocates; and advocating for increased investments to realize gender equality. This Annual Report, the first to be produced by the UN Women Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, documents this work.
