Cambodian authorities urged to take action against fabricators of fake news over COVID-19

Cambodia’s Ministry of Information on Sunday called on authorities to take urgent action against fabricators of fake news over COVID-19, saying that those ill-intentioned individuals are trying to cause chaos and misunderstanding.

In its press statement, the ministry named seven Facebook account and page holders for posting false statements about the COVID-19 with false claims that foreigners infected and died of the virus in the country.

“The above-mentioned news postings are fake news and attempting to mislead the public, so we urge people not to share those pieces of fake news because they can face legal action,” the statement said.
