Genocide and crimes against humanity – these are the crimes alleged to the former chief of the torture prison S 21 of the Khmer Rouge in Phnom Penh. Kaing Guek Eav, better known as “Duch”, is the first former Khmer Rouge leader to be heard before the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). “Duch” claims human rights reasons in requesting his release from detention.
A newspaper article on the Khmer Rouge Tribunal by Wolfgang Meyer, Country Representative of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Cambodia is available here. It was published in the German daily “Die Welt” on November 21, 2007.
