Cambodia’s Hun Sen orders shutdown of independent media outlet over news report about his son (video)

Cambodia’s prime minister has ordered the shutdown of one of the country’s few remaining local independent media outlets. The closure order of Voice of Democracy on February 12, 2023, came after Hun Sen took issue with a news report about his son. One of the world’s longest-serving leaders, the Cambodian strongman has increasingly cracked down on any opposition as he prepares for elections later this year.
