Bail: Denied.

Boeung Kak land rights activist Yorm Bopha was denied bail pending her (as yet, unscheduled) hearing at the Appeal Court today. A crowd of over 100 activists from Boeung Kak and other communities under threat of eviction in Phnom Penh rallied outside from early morning until lunchtime when the decision not to release Bopha was announced. Those waiting outside included Bopha’s young son, husband, and mother. Upon hearing the decision, the deeply saddened crowd destroyed a scale of justice replica, before marching to the Royal Palace to ask for the King to intervene.
