CCHR project coordinator Houn Phon said that some journalists the team interviewed censored themselves in their reporting, avoiding sensitive topics such as corruption and land issues for fear of repercussions. 

“In the present day, citizens also self-censor. They restrict themselves from providing the information to journalists, so the journalists cannot get the information,” he said. “The restriction of press freedom does not just affect the media but all general people.”
