This month's newsletter, covering March 2023, focuses on the conviction of the former Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) president Kem Sokha and the subsequent court's decision to put him under house arrest and permanently ban him from political activities. It also reports the decision of the Ministry of Information to shut down three Khmer language media outlets for presumably disseminating disinformation in a report on a senior official's role in a land fraud case.

Finally, this newsletter covers the arrest of a Buddhist monk while peacefully marching across Cambodia due to his alleged affiliation with the opposition Candlelight Party.
