International Labour Organisation said it was "disappointed" to hear
of Wednesday's unanimous decision by the Court of Appeal not to
overturn the conviction of Thach Saveth, who was found guilty of the
2004 slaying of union leader Ros Sovannareth. "The ILO has repeatedly
called for Thatch Saveth to be released from prison and for the murder
of Ros Sovannareth to be investigated in accordance with international
standards of due process, so that the true perpetrators can be brought
to justice," read a statement issued Thursday.
