The Project, which began in June 2010, facilitates training on human rights to grassroots activists working for Community Based Organizations ("CBOs").

This third edition of the Sithi Project bi-monthly newsletter focuses on the development of the online human rights portal, Sithi.org, its achievements so far, and its new look and functionality as Sithi.org version 4.0.

In 2008, the Law on the Suppression of Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation (the "LHTSE") was introduced in an effort to increase the rate of successful prosecutions for human trafficking offenders in Cambodia.

It is a fundamental principle of criminal law that no one can be found guilty of a criminal offense for an act or omission that did not constitute a crime at the time the alleged action or omission took place (Article 15 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and Article 3 of the Penal Code). Additionally, a heavier penalty may not be imposed than the one that was applicable at the time of the offense. If, subsequent to the commission of the offense, provision is made by law for the imposition of a lighter penalty, the lighter penalty shall apply (Article 10 of the Penal Code).
