In 2008 and 2009, I was an editor and reporter at The Cambodia Daily, Phnom Penh’s English-language newspaper of record until it was shut down by the Hun Sen régime in 2017. I covered especially the international tribunal for the Khmer Rouge during its first trial, of Duch; sexual violence against children, first in newspaper articles and later in a documentary; and the border dispute and military skirmishes with Thailand at Preah Vihear, among other daily reporting duties.
