A factory worker who is suing his former employer for unlawful dismissal appeared
in Phnom Penh municipal court on June 3 with his lawyer, Sam Rainsy, according to
a press release from the Free Trade of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia.
The statement said that the worker and the employer were called to appear by the
judge, Kong Seth, so that they could negotiate a settlement, adding that this was
an historical breakthrough for a court to investigate a complaint from a worker who
alleges that he was wrongly dismissed.
