Cambodia instructs radio and TV stations to get permission for guests discussing legal topics.
Cambodia’s Ministry of Information has issued new media restrictions on discussing law, ordering TV and radio stations to use only legal commentators assigned by the national bar association as guests on their shows.
Independent media outlets who received the notice Friday said the new rules are aimed at further muzzling freedom of the press in Cambodia, which has faced criticism for the lack of independence of its judiciary.
A statement by Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith dated Jan. 31 directed radio and TV outlets to ask the bar association to assign lawyers to their shows, saying the move was aimed at curbing “misinterpretation” of the law.
