Court draws more into Sabrina case

Eight people allegedly involved in a worker demonstration that devolved into a violent clash with authorities at a Kampong Speu-based Nike supplier have been summonsed to court. Another eight arrested at the scene already await trial.

Some of the summonses ordered the workers, who allegedly participated in melees that occurred on May 27 and June 3 at the Sabrina garment factory, to appear before a judge as soon as next week, the provincial judge in charge of the case, Cheum Rithy, said.

Workers called in include Chi Sakla, Sun Vanny, Say Sambo, Say Bros and Seang Hem. Free Trade Union representatives include Srey Mom, Yann Roth Keopisey and Thorn Thol.

These eight are the latest to face charges after demonstrators exchanged a volley of sticks and rocks with police and employees who remained at work while protesting the Sabrina Garment factory.

The clash resulted in significant property damage and left at least 23 people, including one police officer, injured.
