1700 days in prison

The Cambodian human rights group Licadho organized a ceremony today in Phnom Penh calling on the Supreme Court to hear the appeal of Born Samnang and Sok Sam Oeun.

During the event, 1700 white balloons were released to mark the 1700 days that the two have been held. They've been waiting 17 months for the appeal. We hope they could see the balloons from their cells.
