RFA statement on Cambodian order to block online content

July 17, 2023

Responding to a reported July 12 order by Cambodian government regulators to block the websites and social media pages of independent media outlets, including Radio Free Asia’s Khmer Service, RFA Chief Communication Officer Rohit Mahajan issued the following statement:

“RFA condemns the order from the government of Cambodia for internet service providers to block RFA content on online platforms – which is in clear violation of Cambodian law and an attempt to censor the free flow of information ahead of the July 23 election. Access to timely, accurate news and information, which RFA’s programming and content provides to the Cambodian people on a daily basis, is essential in any democracy where the rule of law supports free speech and a free press. Despite these unfortunate efforts, RFA will keep striving to inform its audience in Cambodia with up-to-the-minute journalism during this critical time and beyond.”
