On Tuesday, January 31 2012, the students, faculty, and management team of the University of Cambodia and the SEA-TV staff and management team – a total of more than 500 mourners – gathered in front of SEA-TV to observe the mourning ceremony and pay respect to former King Father Norodom Sihanouk who passed away in Beijing, China, on October 15, 2012.
“Former King Norodom Sihanouk was indeed a great king and has always remained in our hearts and has been well recognized as the father of the nation, its territorial integrity, and national unity … and fought for our country and people’s independence,” said one UC student interviewed by SEA-TV crew. “We are so pleased to see people throughout the country observing and conducting the mourning ceremony for our late King Father’s death and pray for him to rest in peace for everlasting life,” another student added.

The mourning ceremony on the premises of UC in front of SEA-TV was accompanied by traditional music which continued to be played until night.
