In a crackdown condemned as “overkill” by labour-rights groups, armed police and security guards broke up a peaceful protest of mostly young women at NagaWorld casino yesterday, briefly detaining 19 workers and their union leaders.
As rain poured down, protesters who had been outside the court since 1pm, briefly clashed with police on Sothearos Boulevard, shortly after Boeung Kak lake land-rights activist Yorm Bopha verdict upholds. Yorm Bopha will remain in prison after the Court of Appeal upheld her guilty verdict late Friday, but suspended one year of her three-year sentence.
