A Kampong Speu judge released the vice-president and a member of the Free Trade Union on bail yesterday after the court questioned the two about their alleged roles in a violent demonstration at Sabrina Garment factory.
FTU vice-president Chi Sakla, 33, and union member Say Sambo, 27, were both released from court under the conditions that they do not change their current residences and appear at all future court dates, Sakla said.
Both were summonsed without being taken into custody.
“I feel disappointed at the court decision, because it feels like I am detained,” Sakla said. “I want the court to finish the case as soon as possible and vindicate me and the other suspects.”
Sakla and Sambo are the latest to be questioned in connection with a June 3 strike demonstration at the Nike supplier that turned violent, with strikers and employees still working throwing rocks and sticks at each other. At least 23 people were injured. Eight FTU members arrested at the demonstration remain in custody.
