Cambodian newspapers shut down (Guardian)


Two newspapers critical of the Cambodian ruling party – The Water & Fire News and The World News – have been shut down permanently by the government.

Their publishing licences were revoked on 3 August because of ‘a perceived insult to the ministry of information.”

Five men have also been convicted of “provocation” for distributing pamphlets critical of the state. They revealed the Cambodian government’s ties to the Vietnamese government and accused prime minister Hun Sen of selling land to foreign countries, calling him a “traitor” and a “puppet of Vietnam.”
