SINGAPORE — The Cambodian judiciary has dropped charges against a town governor accused of shooting three garment-industry workers on strike, sparking protests from human-rights activists in the country.
According to sources, a court in the southeastern province of Svay Rieng this week dropped three charges of “causing harm without intent” against Chhouk Bandith, who at the time was the governor of a town in the province, citing insufficient evidence. Bandith had been facing the charges for his alleged shooting, on Feb. 20, of three female employees of Kaoway Sports Ltd., a Taiwanese-owned factory that produces items for Puma. One of the three workers was hospitalized in intensive care, and two suffer from lingering health problems associated with the shooting, said Moeun Tola, head of the labor program at the Community Legal Education Center, a local rights group.
