Newspaper kiosks

The Club of Cambodian Journalists has asked the Phnom Penh municipality to stop their

plan to evict street-side newspaper sellers in various areas around the city.

City Hall said it needs to remove the stands in order to maintain public order.

Journalists claim that any attempt to prohibit or curtail the free movement of information

is a violation of Cambodia's freedom of press, which they cite as a "major factor

of democratic principles."

Municipal representative Mann Choeun met with sellers in June 2004 and signed an

agreement in June 2004, saying that City Hall must leave news sellers in their current

locations or relocate them to a suitable spot.
