Dear Editor,

I would like to thank you very much for quoting my comments through telephone interview in an article titled "WHO left holding breath for tobacco control law" issued on Phnom Penh Post, Volume 17, number 15, dated on July 25, 2008.

However, I was quoted wrong ["The law is still controversial. It needs clear study about taxation and other impacts on society and economy"] the information is contrary to what I really meant at that time.

I would like to request you for a change from the above phrase to the correct one:  while "The Law is comprehensive and more than 100 NGOs, at least four public universities as well as thousands public have signed and printed their institutions and names to urge the Government to pass the law."

Dr Mom Kong,

Executive Director
