CTN journalist fails to testify on public holiday

A CAMBODIA Television Network correspondent summoned to appear in Banteay Meanchey provincial court yesterday did not show as the hearing fell on a public holiday. CTN’s Lay Ly was summoned in connection with a disinformation complaint filed by local property firm ARP-OITC based on a report on a land dispute between the company and a military officer. CTN news editor Huy Vannak said lawyers for the station requested that the hearing be rescheduled. Banteay Meanchey prosecutor So Vath said yesterday that the court was closed for the holiday, but he said he was unsure about rescheduling procedure because he was not in charge of the case. Huy Vannak said he did not know the details of the complaint. “We don’t know what specifically they sued us about, so I am not sure what they want,” Huy Vannak said.
