Photo Gallery: The Cambodia Daily Bids Farewell to Cambodia

Facing with imminent closure after being slapped with more than $6 million tax bill by the government last month, The Cambodia Daily bids farewell to Cambodia and its readers today, according a statement. After Monday, September 4th, the well-respected newspaper will not be seen anymore at the local newspaper stores in the Cambodia capital, Phnom Penh and other provinces. “You deserve better. We’re sorry that we cannot be here after tomorrow,” said Jodie DeJonge, the editor in chief of the paper.
