Too high-tech

 David Chandler (right) with myself (center) in July 2009
The coughing has died down so the Ratanakiri trip (= monkey spotting in the jungle) looks likely to happen. Due to leave Phnom Penh early on Sunday morning and return next Thursday evening. No updates during that time as much of it will be spend in the forest/jungle or travelling up to and back from the far northeast of the country. I've not yet graduated to getting online whilst mobile, way too high-tech for me.

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.
