Moeun Tola, head of the labor program at the Community Legal Education Center, said the factory’s actions showed they do not respect labor rights. He urged to factory to negotiate with workers to address their concerns. He also urged authorities to find the gangsters and issue punishments.
“I think, if police stay here, they should stop the gangster’s activity and should arrest perpetrators. But generally they arrest the victims and release the perpetrators,” he said.
