Sihanoukville (FN), May 1 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen called on some foreign countries to refrain from sponsoring protests of former NagaWorld employees in Cambodia.

The premier spoke at a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of Sihanoukville container terminal, held on Monday (May 1) in Sihanoukville province.

Such demonstration has been going on for two years, with an initial participation of 300 people and now decreased to only 100 people, the premier questioned the source of financial support for these strikes.

Premier Hun Sen stated, “they [former NagaWorld employees] have been unemployed for two years and still have the strength and resources to protest, so where does this support come from? The Royal government is aware of such plan.”

Samdech continued, some unions in Cambodia were reported that they were threatened to join a demonstration on May 1, an International Labor Day; otherwise, their subsidies from abroad will be cut off.

On that occasion, Samdech underlined that the rights of worker is respected every day, not just on International Labor Day.
