Ban Backtrack

In a surprise move (at least to me) the Cambodian government has backtracked on its banning of foreign-produced radio content.

“According to requests to the Ministry of Information to allow the rebroadcast of foreign radio in Khmer language on local FM stations, the ministry has decided to allow FM stations that sell their airtime to those foreign radio stations to continue their broadcasts as normal from now on,” the ministry said in its statement.

How generous of them to allow a small measure of freedom of the press.

No word though on the banning of foreigners campaigning during the up-coming election.
