Political pressure – questionable hefty fines – accusations of mismanagement – false news and more, all spell for the permanent closure after 24 years of daily editions the popular Cambodian daily english newspaper ‘The Cambodia Daily’ is no more! Forced into closure by being handed down from the central Cambodian government disputed fines totaling some $6.3 million tax bill.

This brings a sad ending to almost two and a half decades of independent journalism believing in free press all printed in English to enable Cambodian news to get out to a global readership and audience…

The Cambodia Daily Last Edition October 24, 2017

Troublesome closure that has all the trade marks of political pressure to gag the press voice of freedom – free speech – free press and the option to publish content that is transparently critical of the ruling Government of Cambodia. All that seems to be now gone as Cambodia moves into a future of total press censorship. Meaning that all news content will be checked before the ruling Government of Cambodia clears for publication.
