Cambodia: Mother Nature activists fined & sentenced to serve 5 months in prison for recording controversial sand dredging operations

Dearm (Dim) Kundy and Hun Vanak, members of the now dissolved environmental NGO Mother Nature, were arrested while taking photos of sand dredging operations along the Cambodian coast. These activities, together with many other stakeholders, have reported that the dredging activities have led to severe destruction of the environment and loss of livelihoods of the local people.

The activists were detained on charges of inciting others to "commit crimes" and violations of privacy.
