Relatives of Murdered Journalists and Media Institutions Call for Ending Impunity

Out of the 13 journalists killed in Cambodia from 1993 until 2014, only two of the cases have resulted in the accused being sentenced and serving jail terms. In four of the murder cases, although suspects were arrested, they were later released and in eight of the cases nobody has been charged or any arrests made.

Before these murders happened, six of the 13 journalists were writing about corruption within the Cambodian government. Three others were writing about illegal logging in Cambodia, one was covering an event being held by the Khmer National Party and another journalist was killed for working in a radio station that refused to broadcast a political speech. Of the murdered journalists, one had taken photographs of soldiers looting in a public market while another had exposed illegal fishing.
