Cambodia Daily Rebuffs Government Reinstatement Offer

An independent news outlet that ceased operations within Cambodia ahead of government demands it settle a crushing “tax debt” has dismissed a government offer for reinstatement.

Cambodia’s Minister of Interior Sar Kheng said Tuesday that the Cambodia Daily can resume operations within the country if the paper pays what he said were taxes still owed to the government.

The Cambodia Daily, which once had a print version available in the Cambodian capital, closed there in September 2017, but now delivers its content online from an outside location through its website and Facebook page.
