In Brief: City hall blocking public forum: group

The Cambodian Centre for Human Rights (CCHR) has slammed city authorities for failing to approve a public forum planned by the group at Boeung Kak lake on June 12. In a statement released Tuesday, it said City Hall has "consistently and repeatedly" sought to prevent the forum, designed to give residents a chance to speak with officials and elected representatives. "They have forbidden our request twice already," CCHR Project Coordinator Chhim Savuth said, referring to a previous plan to hold it on May 20.
