Civil society asks brands to speak out on issues

Civil society groups have called on brands that source clothing from Cambodian factories to denounce two “baseless” judicial decisions relating to the Kingdom’s garment sector.

In an open letter sent to coincide with International Labour Day, the groups asked buyers to criticise last year’s jailing of Born Samnang and Sok Sam Oeun – who the groups say are innocent – over the 2004 murder of Free Trade Union leader Chea Vichea.

They also asked brands to criticise the government’s “failure to appropriately prosecute” ex-Bavet town governor Chhouk Bandith over the shooting of three garment workers last February.
