Media Forum on Comparison between Press Law and Draft Law on Access to Information
With the support of UNESCO Cambodia, the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM) is pleased to announce the holding of Media Forum on April 26, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 12: 00 PM at Sunway Hotel in Phnom Penh. The main goal of the forum is to discuss and compare the Press Law 1995 and the draft law on Access to Information. This forum will be presided over by His Excellency Khieu Kanharith, Minister of Information. While the forum is open to the public, CCIM believes this media forum will be much of interests to the journalists, media institutions, political parties and relevant private and public institutions. As Press Law 1995 and draft law on Access to Information may have overlapping and inconsistent clauses, CCIM strongly hopes that the discussions will contribute significantly to improving the draft law on Access to Information to serve the public interests.
