The first batch of foreign expert witnesses, who will appear in trial 002 at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal have been announced. They include the number 1 authority on all things Cambodian, scholar David Chandler; Philip Short, author of a biography on Pol Pot; Henri Locard, a French historian; and Elizabeth Becker, a journalist who interviewed Pol Pot whilst he was in power in 1978. Their testimony will be heard later this year. Trial 002 is for the three senior Khmer Rouge regime leaders, Nuon Chea, Khieu Samphan and Ieng Sary.
Not convinced how this post will look as the template for posting stories on Blogger has just changed without notice and it seems a little clunky to me. Anyway, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
