On the 11th of July 2018, Mr. Tola Moeun, Executive Director of the Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights, received an acquittal order relating to the case filed by Pich Sros, President of the Cambodian Youth Party, who had filed a complaint to the Phnom Penh Court of First Instance on the 8th of September 2017, regarding money derived from the funeral of Dr.Kem Ley.
After going through investigate proceedings, the Phnom Penh Court has decided to acquit Tola for the reason that no sufficient evidence was submitted.
The above decision is a positive result for the Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights in pursuing its mission to promote labour and human rights in Cambodia. At the same time, we hope to see positive decisions in other criminal cases involving human rights defenders and other rights defenders which are currently before the courts.
The Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights is committed to continuing its missions in promoting labour rights and human rights in Cambodia by strengthening the capacity of workers through the provision of legal aid and other appropriate means.
