Citizen-led media gets new blog

In a bid to highlight abuses in the workplace, an NGO today will officially launch a website and hotline, allowing people to post stories as citizen journalists.

The Community Legal Education Center (CLEC) will hold a ceremony this morning promoting their new project, Voice of the People, which can be found at www.vopkh.net, Ngeth Moses, a CLEC information communication technology project coordinator said yesterday.

“We want information not hidden in the closet,” said Moses, pointing out that factory workers can write about abuses in their workplaces.

In addition to users being able to file stories themselves, an Interactive Voice Response hotline (070-221-102) will enable people to call in with stories for CLEC staff to write and post.

Council of Ministers spokesman Phay Siphan yesterday said he approves of the initiative and is not worried about the possibility of libellous information being posted.
