Thousands attend CNRP-organised pro-democracy vigil in South Korea

Thousands of supporters of the Supreme Court-dissolved Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) on Saturday gathered in the South Korean city of Gwangju to hold a candlelight demonstration calling for the “liberation” of democracy in Cambodia.

Yim Sinorn, a CNRP member in South Korea, said on Sunday that an estimated 7,000 Cambodian migrant workers and party members from other countries joined in the protest.

He said this was more than expected, with only 4,000 candles prepared for the event.
