Teachers of bilingual classes of French and Khmer across Cambodia halted work on
March 30, after the government failed to pay them their promised salaries, local
media reported. A complaint filed to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport by
the staff members and teachers of French-Khmer bilingual classes in Phnom Penh, stated
that teaching assistants and advisors in six districts had not received salaries
since January 2007. The complaint stated the teachers would return to work when their
salaries were paid.
