IN BRIEF: XING TAI GARMENT WORKERS PROTEST

About 850 employees of the Xing Tai garment factory in Sen Sok district protested on Monday against poor working conditions, which they said included a lack of toilets and hot, dark, windowless workspaces. Va Sophon, deputy chief of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers Democratic Union, which represents some of the workers, said the factory had fired him late last year in an attempt to stymie workers' protests. But Horn Hav, chief of administration at the factory, said Va Sophon had been dismissed for poor performance.
