Information Ministry Revokes Three Media Licenses Following Reports on Senior Official’s Role in Land Fraud

Correction: An earlier version of this article published on March 18, 2023 cited only two of three reasons raised by Information Ministry spokesperson Meas Sophorn in a Telegram interview with CamboJA regarding the Ministry’s decision to revoke the three media licenses. The spokesperson's third stated reason that was not cited in the earlier version is that “Furthermore, those media outlets disseminated disinformation because those media outlets were asked to help other parties [publish information] and were promised to receive benefits if the settlement was resolved [favorably].”
