Jessica Evans of the Human Rights Watch criticized International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde for being silent [1] about Cambodian's corruption problem when the IMF leader visited the country early this month:

Lagarde missed a major opportunity in Cambodia to highlight governance problems, but she can right this by speaking out when she returns to headquarters. If the IMF’s message on corruption is to be more than rhetoric, Lagarde needs to convey it both publicly and privately each time she meets with leaders of the world’s most corrupt nations.
