Phnom penh Post sold to Malaysian PR firm


Recommended Posts

Cambodia’s oldest newspaper The Phnom Penh Post is set to enter a new phase after its parent company was sold yesterday (May 5) to a Malaysian public relations company with links to the Cambodia government and rival Cambodian publisher Mohan Tirvgmanasam Banddam, better known as T Mohan, publisher of the rival Khmer Times.

Staff of the almost 26 year-old publication will reportedly be told of the sale today (May 6), while participating in a river cruise hosted by outgoing former majority shareholder Bill Clough.

The sale was announced in a statement by Mr Clough posted to the Facebook page of Cambodia’s General Department of Taxation (GDT) last night, describing new owner Siva Kumar G as a ‘well respected newspaper man, with a (sic) experienced journalist (sic) background’.

Interestingly the sale announcement here


spells the new owner's name wrong, which everyone except this story is repeating.

Sorry admin. Didn't see the previous thread. Trying to find where I report myself for duplicate posting.
