Facing Justice: Episode 52

This is the 52nd episode of a series of weekly TV reports about the proceedings in the second Khmer Rouge trial. It was first broadcast on CTN on Monday 2 February 2015. A total of 16 new programs (episodes 38 – 53) have been sponsored by USAID (the US Agency for International Development) in a two-year project aimed at aiding National Reconciliation. Episode 52 covers the third week of the new part of the second trial, ‘Case 002/02’ – from Monday 26 to Thursday 29 January. Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan, two leading members of the Khmer Rouge regime (in power from 1975 to 1979), are accused of a multitude of atrocious crimes. The charges are related to ‘Genocide’ – against Chams and Vietnamese; the treatment of Buddhists, ‘Forced Marriages and Rape’, ‘Internal Purges’ and the targeting of former Khmer Republic officials.
