The Khmer Rouge Tribunal
gave its verdict of guilty and life sentences for the two surviving masterminds behind the Cambodian genocide of the 70s recently and tomorrow (Wednesday) will be a unique opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of Case 002 with some of the leading figures involved in the ECCC trial itself. The Chief Judge said in summing up; "extermination encompassing murder, political persecution, and other
inhumane acts comprising forced transfer, enforced disappearances and
attacks against human dignity," as part of the verdict.
At Meta House from 7pm, in After The Verdict, the crimes committed by former KR leaders Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan will be up for discussion by Phay Siphan, Helen Jarvis, Lars Olsen, Sour Sotheavy and Victor Koppe, the co-lawyer in Nuon Chea's defense team. A veritable line-up of heavy hitters which should make for an interesting discussion.
