The United Nations' special rapporteur for human rights in Cambodia arrived in this country on Tuesday for his ten-day mission.

Surya Subedi is making his third mission here since he was appointed as the U.N special envoy on human rights in Cambodia last year.

According to the statement of the U.N office in Cambodia, it said Surya Subedi will assess the country's judicial system.

"I will focus my mission to Cambodia on the functioning of the judiciary as part of my ongoing assessment of institutions critical to the promotion and protection of human rights, with a view to assessing the extent to which it is accessible to ordinary Cambodians and delivers justice," Subedi said in a statement which was issued by the local office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights.

During the visit, Subedi will meet with King Norodom Sihamoni and Prime Minister Hun Sen. He will also meet with judicial officials and civil society representatives.

According to his schedule, Subedi will stay in Cambodia until June 17.
