A curse for the court

Community members gathered this morning to protest the verdict of the trial which saw Yorm Bopha sentenced to three years in jail.
About 80 villagers from different communities around Phnom Penh cursed the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on the 31 Dec. 2012 for the verdict they release a few days ago during the trial of Yorm Bopha. Community members burnt incense and paper money stained red, they threw salt and chillies at the court and prayed to Buddha that he help them in their struggle.
