Cambodian Police Arrest Union Leader Over Casino Strike

Cambodian police arrested a casino workers union leader and two of her colleagues Tuesday as hundreds of workers protested against lay-offs at a gambling hotspot run by a Hong Kong-listed firm.

Chhim Sithar, the leader of the workers’ union at Nagacorp Ltd’s casino and hotel complex in Phnom Penh, was dragged into a car by plainclothes police as she arrived at a protest, AFP journalists at the scene said.
