Cambodia Court Released Eight Women LRSU Activists on Bail

Cambodian authorities released eight of the trade union members detained in January and February this year after the country was condemned for human rights violations by the UN.

The conflict between the Labour Rights Supported Union of Khmer Employees (LRSU) of NagaWorld and NagaCorp around the unlawful layoff of 365 union members as part of the cost-cutting measures the operator of the integrated casino resort in Phnom Penh had undertaken during the pandemic last year took another turn.

A total of eleven trade union leaders, eight women and three men, who were arrested in January and February and charged with incitement to commit a felony, sought release on bail from Cambodian court to be able to represent the 365 LRSU members who are still fighting to be reinstated, deeming the layoff unlawful.
