#Cambodge : 8 Grands Acheteurs Internationaux demandent un plan d’actions concrètes à HUN Sen

Soucieuse de voir le Cambodge sombrer sous les coups des sanctions économiques imposées par l’UE et les Etats-Unis, une association de 8 Grands Acheteurs Internationaux de chaussures et de vêtements produits au Cambodge, a adressé pour une seconde fois une lettre à HUN Sen.

Elle lui demande de prendre des mesures avec un plan d’actions concrètes pour restaurer les droits des travailleurs et de leurs représentants syndicaux, les droits de l’homme et la démocratie. Ces requêtes ont été notamment formulées par l’UE et les Etats-Unis.

Dans la foulée Human Rights Watch a renouvelé sa demande de libération de KEM Sokha.

 

Buyers aren’t buying it

Concerned with how an EU withdrawal from the agreement—and the possible U.S. withdrawal from a similar agreement—would affect business, the leaders of several international garment, footwear and travel goods buyers issued a joint letter to Hun Sen calling for concrete steps to be taken so that the country’s preferential trade statuses could be preserved.

It describes the EU’s review, and the legislation-pending U.S. Congress review as “worrying developments for companies that value sourcing from Cambodia.”

They said they shared an interest in further growth in the country’s manufacturing sector, but not at the expense of ethics.

“Because of this shared interest, we remain deeply concerned with the lack of progress that has been made in addressing these important issues. Criminal charges and convictions remain in place against many labor leaders, the Trade Union law of 2016 continues to restrict the establishment of unions and union activity and the diminished role and reduced independence of the Arbitration Council continues to undercut what was a very effective dispute resolution mechanism,”
