Cambodian TV journo receives death threats

alerts-button-1.jpgCambodian TV journalist Soy Sopheap has received death threats following his commentary on alleged corruption in the military. Reporters Sans Frontieres reports that an anonymous letter was left last September 8 in front of a Phnom Penh bar habitually frequented by the city’s journalists. “I’ve had it in for you for a long time, dirty Soy Sopheap,” the letter read. “Watch out for yourself when you criticise the stars; it means death”. The word ‘stars’ is said to allude to generals. RSF says Cambodian Information Minister Khieu Kanharith has promised a full investigation.
