FM90 and CCHR Temporarily End Dispute - 2004-06-21

The dispute between pro-FUNCINPEC Party radio station FM 90 and the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR) temporarily ended after CCHR president, Mr. Kem Sokha, agreed to drop the lawsuit against the radio station for breaching the contract.

In return, Minister of Information Lu Lay Sreng of FUNCINPEC said FM90 will resume broadcasting CCHR's programs although it is not known when the broadcast will resume.

The temporary agreement came after Mr. Kem Sokha met with Mr. Lu Lay Sreng.

Mr. Kem Sokha said he is thinking about finding a more independent radio station such as Beehive 105 to air his center's programs. Currently CCHR airs 4 hours of programming on FM 105. But Mr. Kem Sokha wants to add another 4 hours of broadcast and increase the station's megahertz.
