'Patriots' rally over Preah Vihear

- +

Hundreds of members of the Thai Patriots Network rallied at the Royal Plaza on Monday morning, opposing the International Court of Justice's jurisdiction to make a ruling on the Thai-Cambodian dispute over Preah Vihear temple. 

Chaiwat Sinsuwong, a leader of the rally, said the network had gathered up to 1.3 million names to back a petition rejecting the ICJ's jurisdiction over the issue.

The ICJ has accepted Cambodia's request to reinterpret its 1962 ruling, which awarded ownership of the temple to Cambodia but did not mention the disputed area immediately surrounding it.
