Joint Statement Condemning Cambodian Government
On August 23rd, 2017, the Cambodian foriegn ministry released a statement that ordered the National Democratic Institute in Phnom Penh to cease activities and release their foriegn members. Despite this, the Cambodian citizens felt that the government was perpetuating a pattern of harassment, and the Asian Network for Free Elections released their own statement that outlines harassment towards the media, and calls for a change within the government. The statement reads “This includes the inquiry into the activities and threats against members of a coalition of election monitoring and human rights organizations known as the Situation Room, and the legal actions against independent media institutions such as the Cambodia Daily, Voice of America, and Radio Free Asia.” Several networks banned together in support of the statement, and used their voices to fight against the injustices within the government's system.
