The Cambodian community held a Buddhist ceremony in Bonnyrigg on Saturday, July 11 to honour three advocates for social justice and environmental protection in Cambodia. It was held on the fourth anniversary of the death of Dr Kem Ley, a much-loved commentator and activist who was assassinated in 2016 in a café in Phnom Penh. In the outpouring of grief that followed his death, millions poured into the streets, as his funeral procession wended its way to his hometown.
