This month's newsletter, covering February 2023, focuses on the government's decision to revoke the license of independent media outlet Voice of Democracy (VOD) over a disputed article involving the Prime Minister and his son and the case of gender-based violence exposed by one of its female journalists. It also reports the beginning of the incitement trial against the Nagaworld union leader and members for participating in the peaceful strikes throughout 2022 calling upon a solution for the long-standing labor dispute with the casino owners.

Finally, this newsletter covers the announcement of the US Department of State awarding the Human Rights Defender Award to Chhim Sithar, leader of the Labor Rights Supported Union of Khmer Employees (LRSU).
