Prime Minister Hun Sen lashed out at Radio Free Asia reporter

Description

On June 4, Prime Minister Hun Sen criticized Radio Free Asia's (RFA) Khmer service, calling one of its reporters a "silly person." Hun Sen warned that if RFA Khmer wanted its office to be reopened in Phnom Penh, it would need to remove the reporter he called "silly."
Although the prime minister did not name the reporter specifically, he was likely referring to Chun Chanboth, the manager of RFA Khmer.
In 2017, RFA Khmer closed its Phnom Penh office after two of its staffers were arrested on spying charges. At the time, RFA said it was "impossible" to continue operating in Cambodia.
