We, the three undersigned journalists and media organizations, call on the court to speed up the case against former Cambodia Daily journalists Aun Pheap and Zsombor Peter.
We, the undersigned media organizations and associations, the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM), the Cambodian Journalists Alliance Association (CamboJA), International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), and Overseas Press Club of Cambodia (OPCC) express our deep concerns over the latest directive barring journalists from covering “police investigations”, which could restrict the rights of journalists to cover news in Cambodia.
The Overseas Press Club of Cambodia (OPCC) has elected a new board for 2021.
During these unprecedented times, OPCC board members decided to hold the annual elections online due to imposed Covid-19 restrictions after the “November 28 Community Event”. All members were sent an online voting form and the results are now in.
The Overseas Press Club of Cambodia (OPCC) invites members and potential members to come to the annual board election of the OPCC on Thursday, December 17. During this election we will elect the OPCC board members of 2021.
On this International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists, the Cambodian Journalists Alliance (CamboJA), the Cambodian Center for Independent Media (CCIM), Overseas Press Club of Cambodia (OPCC) and International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) express our deep concern over systems which rarely bring perpetrators of crimes against journalists to justice, and we urge authorities to take immediate action to ensure effective, independent and transparent investigations into such crimes.
The Overseas Press Club of Cambodia (OPCC) will hold its annual board election on December 3rd, 2020. All OPCC members are invited and encouraged to join the meeting and to cast their votes to elect the OPCC board for 2021. The meeting location will be announced at a later time.
