Summonses over alleged factory attack

A group of garment workers and a Free Trade Union representative have been summonsed for questioning over the alleged beating of one of their bosses during a strike that has been raging since February 22.

Thoeun Chek, the group’s representative, said a total of seven workers and the unionist, all from Eternity Global sporting factory in Kandal’s Ang Snuol district, would appear in the provincial court over an “intentional violence” matter or at the provincial police station over an undisclosed matter.

Some had been summonsed to both.

“The employer has accused us of intentional violence against a Chinese general-director, but we didn’t beat anybody up,” he said. “I’m worried this is a fake case.”

More than 100 workers have protested outside the factory since February 22.

Their demands have included a $13 monthly lunch allowance and an end to forced overtime.

An Eternity Global Sporting representative, who declined to be named, said the workers had beaten the company’s director-general – injuring him before security guards intervened.
