A prominent Cambodia watcher is urging the Australian government to consider freezing the Australian-held assets of Cambodian officials in a bid to pressure the government of Prime Minister Hun Sen over the roll-back of democracy in that country.

Cambodia goes to the polls on Sunday in an election widely criticised as rigged.

Joining us on PM is Professor Sophal Ear, who escaped Cambodia as a child during the murderous reign of the Khmer Rouge.

He is now an expert in diplomacy and world affairs at Occidental College in Los Angeles.
