At least nine people have been charged with inciting riots and causing serious social unrest amid a strike by 2,000 Cambodian casino workers who are demanding the reinstatement of union leaders and delegates who were laid off.

Police said six were arrested and sent to Phnom Penh Municipal Court for violating articles 494 and 495 of the penal code while three escaped and were charged in absentia.

“We are deeply disappointed and condemn the actions of the authorities responsible,” said the Independent Democracy of Informal Economy Association (IDEA).
