Skamløst retsopgør i Cambodja

Så blev den første af blot en håndfuld af de øverste ansvarlige for uhyrlighederne under Pol Pots og De Røde Khmerers bondestyre i årene 1975-79 omsider stillet for en dommer: Kaing Guek Eav, bedst kendt som ’Duch’, tidligere skolelærer og bøddel med mindst 14.000 cambodjaneres liv på samvittigheden.

The Road to Law an independent voice in Cambodia

The air is hot and humid in Kompong Thom prison in Central Cambodia. The old walls are peeling. The prison was built by the French colonial power in 1900. Only one wing has been restored, thanks to aid from Australia. The prison is noted jokingly all over the country as the one with the ‘holes in the walls’ – the one from which escape is easy. A broad, rectangular hole (it is really only a slot) was built into the wall; this is where prisoners receive visitors, out in the open and under constant surveillance by the guards.
