Commemoration on Veng Sreng
A small ceremony held by activists and monks from the Independent Monk Network for Social Justice (IMNSJ) was held yesterday near the Canadia garment factory complex on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. A group of around fifty people, a mix of monks and citizens, gathered to show their support for the four dead and the twenty-three detainees still being held by the government after deadly clashes early in January. The group gathered as the sun set, lighting candles and incense. Though bail hearings for the detainees are scheduled later this month, little is known about what fate awaits them.
