The United Nations‘ labour agency said Tuesday international buyers were “extremely concerned” at Cambodia‘s failure to arrest the suspect in last month‘s shootings of three garment workers at a subcontractor for German sportswear firm PUMA SE.
Jill Tucker, technical advisor to the International Labour Organization, said the lack of progress could damage the country as a destination for international brands. “We have heard from brands sourcing in Cambodia that they strongly feel they would like to see quicker progress,” Tucker said. “Our concern is a reflection of the buyers‘ concern – and they seem to be extremely concerned.”
“We would like to see swift and fair and equitable and just resolution of the case,” she said.
