We passed two barriers where we had our bags searched. We thought we would finally be able to enter the courtroom and get on with observing the trial. But, with only a few meters to go until the main courtroom door, we could not advance anymore. Another metal barrier and a line of security officials stood between us and the courtroom. We were told the courtroom was too packed to allow any more people in. At the door, the brother of one of the victims pleaded with the soldiers to let him enter: “They have killed my brother, I have the right to enter”, he shouted to no avail, clearly frustrated and furious that the security forces had denied him access to the trial.
