In Brief: Defamation action deterred

A Siem Reap identity, who cannot be named, is caught up in an interesting defamation court action, and appeared Monday before officials in Phnom Penh. The case involves published comments made by the writer about the cartel-like activities of a taxi association in a nearby border town. An apparently well-connected woman took umbrage and commenced defamation proceedings. The writer is relieved that the charges didn't seem to be taken all that seriously at the preliminary hearing. Observers reported that the proceedings showed that the "Cambodian legal system can work".
