Protest ban lifted: Court rules in favour of sacked 67

The Appeal Court overturned a court decision on Friday that had banned 67 sacked hotel workers in Siem Reap from protesting against their dismissal.

The Siem Reap court had prevented the former Angkor Villa Hotel workers, who had been fired after creating a union, from demonstrating.

Sok Narith, deputy secretary of the Cambodian Tourism and Service Workers’ Federation, said Friday’s decision paved the way for more protests.

“We may assemble in front of the hotel again to demand reinstatement,” he said.

“We now have 40 workers wanting this.

“The former workers are awaiting the upcoming renegotiation.

‘‘If the court finds in their favour, the hotel will have to provide reimbursement from the day of termination to the day of reinstatement.”

The hotel’s lawyer, Eng Sothy, who was absent during the announcement on Friday, said 30 of the former 67 workers had already received their money.
