In the story entitled "Twist in legal fight" published on page 1 of the

last issue, the Post stated that an arrest warrant on charges of illegal confinement

had been issued for Naly Pilorge, acting director of human rights organization Licadho.

published on page 4 of the last issue, the Post stated that the case was heard at

Kampong Som provincial court. It was in fact held at Kampong Speu provincial court.
