In Brief: Publisher catches defamation charge

Phnom Penh

Municipal Court last week formally charged Hang Chakra, the publisher

of the opposition newspaper Khmer Machas Srok, of publishing false

information in a series of articles on official corruption, court

prosecutor Sok Roeun said Sunday. Hang Chakra said he would demonstrate

at the National Assembly if the court resorts to using criminal law to

prosecute him, expressing hopes the court will consider his case under

the country's Press Law, which would result in a fine rather than a

criminal sentence.
