PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - (Overseas Press Club of Cambodia)

Saturday September 15, 2012

The Overseas Press Club of Cambodia strongly condemns the slaying this week of journalist Heng Serei Oudom in Ratanakkiri province and urges afull and transparent investigation by all relevant authorities and parties.

Mr Oudom had been covering forest crimes as part of his general news reporting for the Vorakchun Khmer newspaper, said Rin Ratanak, the paper's editor. According to the paper and Mr Oudom's wife, he left the house Sunday for a meeting and never returned. His hacked and beaten body was found Tuesday in the trunk of his car, 3km from his home in Banlung City.

According to local newspaper reports, Mr Oudom's coverage of forest crimes included illegal logging that implicated the son of a provincial military commander. It was alsoreported that police have identified four mobile phone numbers Mr Oudom had contact with before his disappearance. The OPCC hopes and expects that all potential leads tosolving the case are explored to their fullest.

The OPCC urges a full and transparent investigation into Mr Oudom's murder. Such an act strikes at the core of a journalist's ability to do their job. Another unsolved case such as this would mark the 11th in 20 years in Cambodia, further implying to the worldthat Cambodia has its limits on the press freedoms it heralds.
