Defamation is Changed From Penal Code to Civil Code


The Phnom Penh Municipal court's judge Ang Vong Vatana says Wednesday that legal experts are thinking about some measures to change defamation charges to a new criminal code after Prime Minister Hun Sen proposed Tuesday.

Judge Ang says that he is looking for measures to change defamation charges to a new criminal code so that the defendants will not be detained and will only pay some money.

The prime minister called for the abolishment of criminal penalties for defamation.

Cambodia is making a new criminal legislation with technical aids from France.
