Yash Gai resigns

The UN's special envoy for human rights to Cambodia Yash Ghai has resigned, reports Radio Australia. The lawyer was unusually blunt in his criticism of the human rights situation in Cambodia, and has been arguing with Cambodian officials.

Cambodia has lodged a formal complaint against Yash Ghai with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

I liked Yash Ghai, I hope his successor will be as daringly straightforward as he has been.
