Garment workers in Cambodia still fighting for justice

Last year we reported on the shooting of protesting garment workers at KaoWay in Cambodia, a factory that manufactures shoes for German company Puma.  The District Governor, Chhouk Bandith, shot three workers during a protest for wage increases of 50 cents per day. Despite numerous court appearances and overwhelming evidence, Bandith’s connections to high ranking government officials saw he was never arrested. His final trial is scheduled for 21 May, 2013.
