Trial of ‘the 23’ delayed from today to next week

Judges at Phnom Penh Municipal Court will hear the cases of 23 people arrested in early January during garment sector demonstrations next week, rather than today, according to labour and human rights groups.

Dave Welsh of Solidarity Center and Am Sam Ath of Licadho both said yesterday those arrested during violent demonstrations on January 2 and 3 – the latter of which ended with at least four shot dead by security forces – will be tried in separate courtrooms on April 25 on charges ranging from inciting violence to aggravated intentional violence.

Court officials couldn’t be reached.
