The New Zealanders Philip Blackwood was just going start a bar in Yangon, the largest city in Burma (Myanmar).

In late November, V Gastro Bar started, but just two weeks after, on December 10th, Blackwood and his colleagues Tun Thureon (40) and Ko Ko Htut (26) were arrested.

The three men were thrown in prison for using a promotional picture on their Facebook page that showed Buddha with headphones.

The three men were arrested for having insulted Buddhism and Buddhists after having posted the psychedelic Buddha image.

The bar posted an apology the same day that the three men were arrested.

- We want to show our regret that we have offended the citizens of this great city, which has received us so well. It was never intended to offend anyone or a religious group, they wrote.

- We hope our apology is accepted, the apology said.

It does not appear that it was accepted.

Outside the court in Rangoon, monks lined up to follow the case against the three men. None of the three have admitted guilt. Meanwhile, the process of obtaining attorneys have been very difficult, and the lawyer Mya Thway, which eventually took the case, told NBC that he has received anonymous threats to "be cut into pieces and burned" for being their lawyer.

The lawyer believe the trial of the three will be lengthy.
