The Phnom Penh Municipal Court yesterday ordered an investigation into NagaWorld’s union leaders and several other union members for breaching a court order which ruled a strike organised by the union yesterday as illegal.

Union members and other individuals were cited for organising a strike over wages and other demands in front of the NagaWorld building in Phnom Penh yesterday morning.

Those who have been slated for investigations for contempt of court and will be questioned include Chhim Sithar, the president of Labour Rights Supported Union of Khmer Employees of NagaWorld and Chhun Sokha, the union’s vice president, and several other members of the union who led the protest.

“These individuals are to be investigated over breaching a court order, which was committed in front of NagaWorld premises in Phnom Penh on 9th of January, 2020,” read the warrant, obtained by Khmer Times yesterday.
