PHNOM PENH - The Banteay Meanchey provincial court has ordered casino workers in a border town to resume work, following a five-day strike over poor working conditions.

The 300 workers are also demanding that two union leaders be given their jobs back after they were fired earlier this year by Casino Tropicana.

The provincial court judge, Pich Vicheathor, told workers they must resume their work or be fired, workers said.

The workers say they will continue their strike, while rights activists say the court showed bias toward the casino in its decision.

Khun Tharo, a program official at the American Center for International Labor Solidarity, said the court order was not acceptable. “We will strike tomorrow until demands are met for a solution between employers and employees,” he said.

Workers now stand to lose all their benefits, which means their demands have met with “nothing,” Sum Chan Kea, a local coordinator for the rights group Adhoc, said.

Court and casino officials could not be reached for comment.

Australia Says Deal to Send More Refugees to Cambodia Still Oni

31 August 2015
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop on Monday denied a refugee deal with Cambodia had collapsed after Cambodian officials said Cambodian did not intend to accept any more refugees from a South Pacific detention centre under an agreement. Australia and Cambodia agreed last September that some refugees from Nauru would be resettled in Cambodia in exchange for Australian aid, but only four have arrived since then. Cambodian Interior Ministry spokesman General Khieu Sopheak told Reuters that they "have no plans to receive more refugees from Nauru." Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop denied the deal had collapsed. Pin Sisovann, VOA Khmer.
