Cambodia’s striking casino workers petition govt to end violence

Protests are suspended to enable negotiations aimed at ending a strike after nearly four months.

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.
