Two journalists summoned for questioning in Banteay Meanchey

The Banteay Meanchey Provincial Court has summoned two journalists for questioning, apparently in relation to a land dispute between tycoon Lach Bunlim and local residents in Poipet city.

Teav Sam Ol, publisher of website Thgaithmy, said he wrote about the dispute on Dec. 21, and was questioned by the Poipet police chief five days later, he said.

He received a court summons on March 5, but he has requested a delay in the questioning until he can find a lawyer, Sam Ol said.
