Court ruling frees Cambodia clothing workers and activists


On 30 May, a Cambodian court freed 23 clothing workers and labour activists arrested following demonstrations earlier this year.

The 23 men, 21 of whom had been denied bail and detained since January, were given suspended sentences ranging from six month to four-and-a-half years. The ruling reverses the February decision of an appeals court, which refused the release of the workers and activists facing criminal charges.
