Thirteen rubber workers in Ratanakkiri province have filed a lawsuit against the
bosses of the plantation where they worked alleging that they were unfairly fired,
a local rights group said. According to Adhoc, the bosses of the plantation fired
the workers who were paid 70 percent of the market price for the rubber they collected
and replaced them with workers who accepted a 50 percent share. The bosses denied
the accusations and threatened to sue the workers for defamation, local media reported.
