Recommended Posts

Bernard Krisher, former publisher of The Cambodia Daily newspaper, died from heart failure in Tokyo on March 5. A Cambodia Daily online post yesterday said Mr Krisher, former chairman of World Assistance for Cambodia, died in a hospital in Tokyo. He was 87.

His death from heart failure was disclosed by his family following a private burial in New York. Friends and former colleagues in Cambodia were devastated by the news. Chhorn Chansy, former assignment editor at the Cambodia Daily, yesterday said he was very sad to learn of Mr Krisher’s death.
“It is very sad news. Although he has passed away, he will still be in my heart as well as that of Cambodian children who he helped,” he said. “He is a legend.”

Mr Chansy noted that Mr Krisher established an independent newspaper to provide news without fear or favour to Cambodian readers, adding that the Cambodia Daily also provided information to the world, was a voice for poor people and a hub to train young journalists.
