The Government of Cambodia
Two journalists are now known to have been murdered in Cambodia this year. Both journalists are alleged to have been investigating illegal logging which is the main cause of the massive deforestation of the rich Cambodian forest. Cambodia now ranks 12th among the list of deadliest countries for those practicing journalism. As journalism organizations, Internews' Earth Journalism Network (EJN) and the Society of Environment Journalists (SEJ) are not only interested in promoting an independent press throughout the world but also stand up in support of our colleagues to do their work without fear of persecution or murder. What we want is an independent investigation of the murder of Hang Serei Oudom and an immediate end to the murder of journalists in Cambodia and elsewhere in the world.
