Nearly 30 Cambodian migrant workers returned to Cambodia from Jordan on July 31 after they were stranded without employment or income in the country for more than three months.

Khun Tharo, program manager at labor rights group Central, said the 28 workers landed at Phnom Penh International Airport on chartered flight after their employment contracts at two garment factories in Al-Karak were terminated on March 17.

“On the morning of July 31, 2020, 28 Cambodian migrant workers and one child returned from Jordan to Cambodia at around 9am on a special flight that was organized by the Cambodian Embassy in Egypt” and paid for by the factories’ owners, Tharo said.
