That he inflated my information If there is a dispute, there will be no basis between civil society organizations and authorities, but civil society organizations collect information and provide information. Come back to work. This is like a cover-up of CSOs, so relations between the government and civil society are not as transparent as constructive ones. The only partner is the debt watch.
During the second half of 2019, the Ministry of Interior received only two reports related to inquiries from local authorities – Battambang The commune authorities did not issue the address, the address of the organization and the province of Banteay Meanchey, which the district authorities required the NGO to apply for the permit.
