Journalist cops military "slapping"

A local journalist was assaulted by military police in Sihanoukville July 25 for reporting the alleged involvement of a local MP in illegal logging, according to the Asian Human Rights Commission. Military police captain Nget Vutha "slapped" Koh Santepheap reporter Ros Phina for refusing to correct a report alleging the officer's involvement in the transportation of illegally logged timber, according to the NGO. The group says it has written letters to local UN offices calling for their intervention in the case.
