In Brife: Hor Nambora jabs meddling uk media

Hor Nambora, Cambodia's ambassador to the United Kingdom, has taken another swipe at the British media, accusing Guardian journalist Ian MacKinnon of making "irresponsible, sensationalist and defamatory attacks" on the government. In his "Cambodia Diary", published Tuesday, MacKinnon claimed the government has used a series of defamation lawsuits to target and silence government critics. In a letter to the newspaper's editor, Alan Rusbridger, dated Wednesday, Hor Nambora said MacKinnon should "fully acquaint himself" with the Cambodian legal system before making such judgements, adding that Prime Minister Hun Sen is "fully in favour" of a free press and freedom of expression.
