We the undersigned are greatly concerned to hear about the decision of H.E. Mr. Im Sethy Minister of Education, Youth and Sports to order the relocation of three teachers (Mr. Uy Meak, Mr. Uy Mean and Mr. Ong Chen) from Kroul Kol High School, in Chrom District of Svay Rieng Province to schools over 50km away. We understand that in the letter informing these teachers of this decision no explanation was provided and that they have no right to appeal. We feel that this decision is unfair and may be perceived as punishment towards these teachers for making complaints regarding corruption in schools. Indeed we understand from both press reports and from information provided by the Cambodian Independent Teachers’ Association that the teachers had made several complaints about the corrupt practices of the School Director and Deputy Director in Kroul Kol High School, and that this has lead to both of these individual repaying money to the Ministry and been transfered from their positions. We believes that these three teachers in Kroul Kol High School, have demonstrated outstanding bravery in reporting this corruption and now that their allegation has been proven they are been unfairly treated. We are is signing this petition to express our support for these teachers and request that H.E. Mr. Im Sethy Minister of Education, Youth and Sports revise his decision to issue the relocation order. We are very concerned about the message this action may send to other teachers who may be considering reporting other cases of corruption. We hope that H.E. Mr. Im Sethy Minister of Education, Youth and Sports will reconsider the case of these teachers and that he will ensure that their human rights and rights as teachers are full respected.
