Union leaders and workers on Wednesday paid tribute to prominent workers’ rights activist Chea Vichea in front of his statue at Wat Langka pagoda in Phnom Penh.
Vichea, who led the Free Trade Union of Workers, was shot dead on January 22, 2004. No one has been arrested for the murder. Every year, union members and workers come to Wat Langka, where the unionist was murdered, to celebrate his legacy.
On Wednesday, about 100 people gathered in front of the statue erected to honour the man, demanding that more is done to find and prosecute his killer.
