Cambodia News, (Phnom Penh): A Chinese man attempted to jump to his death from the 21st floor of a Jin Yangxing construction site while more than 30 construction workers blocked the road to protest for three months salary that is owed to them by the company.
This incident occurred at 3 pm on October 21, 2020 at the Jin Yangxing building site, Street 508, Village 5, Sangkat Phsar Doeum Thkov, Khan Chamkar Mon in Phnom Penh.

According to Mr. Aing Serey Piseth, Deputy Governor for Construction Planning, before the incident, a group of about 30 construction workers, both Chinese and Cambodian, had gathered on the road to put up protest signs. They blocked Street 508 to protest because the company has not paid their salary for three months. More than 60 workers have not been paid their wages.
During the protest, a Chinese man went up to the roof of the 21-storey building, threatening to commit suicide, and authorities agreed to negociate discussions if he would return to the ground floor.

Mr. Ang Serey Piseth said that as a result of the meeting between the parties, the Chinese company agreed that tomorrow there will be a first temporary payment of 20,000 dollars to the workers. And the company representatives have promised to pay the workers the rest of their money no later than November 15, 2020.
In return, the workers agreed to stop protesting from tomorrow.
