Ministry orders programme off air

The Ministry of Information has ordered that the League for Democracy Party cease airing its daily radio programme, party officials said Sunday. Ith Sarom, a member of the party’s permanent committee, said that in a letter dated June 10, the ministry ordered the temporary suspension of the programme, which broadcast from 7pm to 8pm daily, without giving a justification for the order. “The ministry should tell [us] about the mistakes we have made so that we can make changes, and if we break the law, the ministry can sue us based on the legal procedures,” he said. “There is no reason at all for such a closure.” San Putheary, director of the Ministry of Information’s Audiovisual Department, said the programme had been ordered off the air because it had violated laws relating to the rental of airtime. “It is not related to the political party,” he said.
