An attorney for five people arrested after a violent protest at a Kampong Cham shoe factory said yesterday he is waiting for the court to issue a decision on a bail request he filed on Friday.

“The court still has not replied to me,” said Kim Socheat, the attorney representing five members of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers’ Democratic Union (C.CAWDU) arrested at a protest at Juhui Footwear last month. “The court does not have to file a response until five days; it’s only been three days, so we’ll know after the Water Festival.”

The two C.CAWDU staffers in custody are charged with inciting intentional damage and violence.

The three Juhui employees face lesser charges of intentional damage and violence.

Meanwhile, more than 200 people demonstrated yesterday in front of Juhui, a Walmart supplier.

Kampong Cham deputy prosecutor Chiv Chandara declined to comment on the status of the bail request yesterday.
