The Cambodian Government has defended the garment factory accused by the BBC's Panorama team of using child labour and has asked Nike and Gap to think again about pulling their business out of the factory. The decision to cancel orders at June Textiles could result in the loss of up to 3,000 jobs, according to the Cambodian Union Federation.The Ministry of Labour says that it has investigated the girl's age, who claimed to the BBC that she was just 14, and has determined that she is actually 18-years-old. Huot Chanthy, the acting director of labour inspections, said the ministry had authenticated papers showing that the girl, called Sun Thyda, was 18. He said that Nike was now reconsidering whether to cancel the orders or not.
