Sina to face forgery and disinformation charges

Pav Sina, president of the Collective Union of Movement of Workers, is set to appear at Phnom Penh Municipal Court today to face forgery and disinformation accusations levelled by a hat company.

The union leader confirmed the hearing yesterday, which had been filed by the Southland factory, whose lawyer could not be contacted yesterday.

Sina said he was first summoned in March, but asked for a delay to prepare his defence.

Sina, among the most vocal critics of the new trade union law, which disqualifies people with criminal records from leading unions, said about 20 workers and union members will travel to the court today to show support.

“This is a common issue for me as a union leader working to protect the legitimate rights of workers,” he said.
