Rong Chhun requests more time before case

Rong Chhun, president of the Cambodian Confederation of Unions, has asked Kandal Pro­vincial Court to postpone his court date because he has yet to find a lawyer, a letter he sent the court obtained by the Post yesterday reveals.

The union leader was last week sum­mons­ed to court to respond to alle­ga­tions he incited workers to strike at the Tai Yang and Camwell gar­ment factories in Ang Snuol district and defamed manage­ment of Tai Yang Enterprises, which owns the two factories.

Only 40 people remain on strike, after more than 4,000 workers walked off the job in the early days of the dispute, which began in June over seniority bonuses.
