OPPOSITION-aligned newspaper Khmer Machas Srok has relaunched itself online, after its print edition ceased publication in June because of financial problems. The paper’s publisher, Hang Chakra, said yesterday that the new site (www.kmsdaily.com) went live on Saturday.
“We will still maintain our stance of criticising corruption,” Hang Chakra said.
The print edition of the daily newspaper is scheduled to be relaunched in November.
In June last year, Phnom Penh Municipal Court sentenced Hang Chakra to one year in prison after convicting him of disinformation. The charges were related to articles alleging corruption in Deputy Prime Minister Sok An’s cabinet. Hang Chakra was released in April.
