Camboya - Police brutality (2013)

On 12 November 2013, workers, employed at SL Garment, marched to the Prime Minister’s residence demanding better pay and working conditions. Heavily armed police responded by using live bullets and tear gas to disperse the marchers. A woman who was selling rice at the side of the road was shot and killed. The Prime Minister argued that protests would put the garment industry under risk by encouraging companies to relocate to countries with lower labour costs.
