Stung Treng court urged to apply press law over libel suit against reporter

The Union of Journalist Federations of Cambodia (UJFC) on Wednesday called on the Stung Treng Provincial Court to apply the Press Law in a case involving a Ratanakkiri province parliamentarian and a TV journalist.

Lawmaker Bou Lam has sued PNN reporter Lorn Vanna for defamation, demanding $160,000 in compensation, in relation to a land dispute in Ratanakkiri province’s Veun Sai district.

He referred his complaint to the Stung Treng Provincial Court after the Ratanakkiri Provincial Court rejected it.
