January 21, 2013: Mrs. Por Malis (Vice-President for Operations) led the UC team to the Royal Palace in the morning to offer condolences and prayers for the former King Norodom Sihanouk (Pictured on page 37). Prior to entering the Royal Palace, we had to join in a line of more than 500 mourners from various institutions and organizations at the entrance gate, where two Royal Guards checked our identities and then let us go through a scanning machine. We were instructed to put both of our palms together toward our faces as we readied to approach the coffin where the corpse of the late King Norodom Sihanouk was laid. We were escorted by two royal guards, while walking toward the coffin holding a wreath in front of us to express our sympathy and great condolences.

Although camera crews from different TV stations (including SEATV) and photographers were present, it was a tranquil moment when everyone knelt in grief with tears at the loss of the Great King that His Majesty was, as the Father of Independence, territorial integrity and national unity.

Dr. Haruhisa Handa and Dr. Kao Kim Hourn pay their respects to the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk.
