"Court officials in Phnom Penh have taken the unusual step of criticising recent media reports alleging 'irregularities' in the convictions of three men accused of armed robberies last week. A statement issued Monday and signed by Yet Chakrya, the chief prosecutor at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, alleged that Radio Free Asia (RFA) had broadcast 'exaggerated information' involving three men convicted of committing a series of armed robberies. ... RFA reporter Kim Pov said she met with the Council of Ministers to discuss her reporting." Chrann Chamroeun, The Phnom Penh Post, 24 February 2010.
