Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said yesterday that officials would investigate a website with the same name as the one given to a recently licensed media centre. Dim Sopheavy, manager of the Nokor Wat Media Centre, which was created after the Deum Ampil Media Centre abruptly shut down most of its operations last week due to money troubles, said she and her partners had been surprised that a news website with the same name was already operational. Khieu Kanharith said the government, too, had been “unaware” of the existing site and vowed to look into it, though he did not comment on how the matter might be resolved. In response to emailed questions, a representative of the website – www.nokorwat.com/news – who gave his name only as Piseth said it had been up since December 2009, and that it was “run by students abroad”. The Nokor Wat Media Centre is set to hold its official launch today.
