Unions aligned with opposition leader Sam Rainsy and businessman Ted Ngoy have been authorized to hold simultaneous rallies at Olympic Stadium on Friday, raising security concerns among organizers.
“This could be confusing; this could be dangerous,” Sam Rainsy said Monday. A statement from the Free Trade Union of the Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia said it would not be responsible for any incidents that occur.
National Police Deputy Director Yeng Marady said military and municipal police will be deployed to provide security.
A spokesman for the pro-business Free Union Confederation, which is calling for better relations between workers and employers and improved working conditions, said they were concerned about security but would not cancel their demonstration.
