Cambodia: Hun Sen government bans journalists’ access

Description

Following the ASEAN Summit on November 10-13, Prime Minister Hun Sen invited foreign and local reporters for a two-hour press conference at the Peace Palace — but denied access to VOD and VOA. Information Ministry spokesperson Meas Sophoan said that reporters from the two news outlets “never attend” these press conferences, and alleged they “cut only a few points” from conference speeches to publish.
