See all tags

“Jailed union leader in Cambodia must be released immediately!”, 18 May 2020

Soy Sros, a local union leader at Superl Cambodia, has been arrested and imprisoned for a post on social media criticising the suspension of union members, including a pregnant woman, during the coronavirus crisis... 

Soy Sros was arrested on 2 April for 'provocation' under the criminal code.

According to CUMW president Pav Sina, Soy Sros’ health is deteriorating, and although she is receiving medical treatment in prison, she should be released as soon as possible and given access to medical treatment in a hospital...

Defending the union leader, IndustriALL sent a letter to Superl Holdings on 16 April, urging the company to withdraw the charges against Mrs. Soy Sros. The company has failed to respond.
