Cambodia govt to clamp down on fake online news

The Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of Cambodia on Monday (May 11) has warned that social media users who broadcast images, audio and video of content of a sexual nature, that is inflammatory or racist and harms culture and national traditions are forbidden and will be punished.

According to a ministry directive obtained by The Post on Sunday – the ministry claims it has observed users of certain websites and social network sites, especially online businesses, musicians, writers and so-called outside actors of broadcasting images, text messages, audio clips and videos that are immoral and unethical and having a serious impact on culture, tradition, identity and prestige.

To minimise the impact and maintain the dignity and value of being a Cambodian citizen, the ministry said if any individual or group continues to engage in any of the above activities, the ministry will cooperate with the ministries of Interior; Information; Posts and Telecommunications and other relevant institutions to take action.
