Cambodia: Jailed Professor

The Details are Sketchy blog takes on the appeal by Asian Human Rights Commission to free an arrested professor Tieng Narith in Cambodia. The blogger feels that the commission is not aware of the actual facts surrounding the arrest. “Let’s be clear. Tieng Narith was teaching racism and hate from an unauthorized, self-published, profanity-lace textbook with portraits of Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler on the cover. For the Asian Human Rights Commission to suggest that the school dismissed Tieng Narith unfairly really is remarkable.”
