Cambodia’s striking casino workers petition govt to end violence

Striking casino workers have petitioned the Cambodian government demanding an end to the violence inflicted on them outside the NagaWorld complex in Phnom Penh where female protesters have persistently complained of sexual harassment and manhandling.

The petitions were lodged with the Interior Ministry and the Women’s Affairs Ministry amid a brief lull in the protests, which have been suspended to enable negotiations.

“We are human rights activists and we cannot accept it,” Hun Vannak said regarding violence perpetrated by security personnel outside the casino. “And we don’t want those who do wrong to get away.”
