Irish Times: Facebook used to cripple opposition in run-up to Cambodia’s elections

Irish Times: Facebook used to cripple opposition in run-up to Cambodia’s elections. “Hours before his wedding last month, San Rotha was taking a shower in Kampong Cham, southern Cambodia, when the police came to handcuff and arrest him. The 29-year-old had been caught calling the southeast Asian country’s government ‘authoritarian’ in a video posted to Facebook. His was just one of around a dozen arrests in Cambodia over the past year, all related to the social media giant, which is playing a key and concerning role in the run-up to July’s election.”
