A free Trade Union representative at the Sang Vo factory was released on bail by the Kampong Speu provincial court yesterday.
Sun Pisey was arrested on June 10 for allegedly injuring a co-worker in an altercation.
About 1,000 workers from the factory protested against his arrest several days later, claiming he had been detained because of his union affiliation.
Chea Mony, president of the Free Trade Union, said yesterday that although Sun Pisey had been freed, the court had not yet dropped the charges against him.
Chea Mony said the plaintiff had dropped the complaint.
Court president Khlot Pich said yesterday authorities would “continue to keep an eye on” Sun Pisey and call him back for questioning if necessary.
