Teachers allege pay docked for state ‘party’

TEACHERS in Pursat province are preparing to file a complaint to the Anticorruption Unit after school directors allegedly docked their salaries last month to fund a party held in honour of government officials visiting from Phnom Penh. Kim Darany, provincial director of the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association, said yesterday that she had received complaints from teachers across the province, claiming that up to 9,000 riels [US$2.25] had been deducted from their monthly pay. Soung Sophy, an official at the provincial education department, said yesterday that he did not know about the deductions.
