Senior Khmer Rouge figure trial results.

Remember the Khmer Rouge prison I said I visited? Check out today’s BBC articles about the commander of it.

More information about the infamous ‘Duch’ here directly oversaw  the detention and torture of 17,000 inmates.

He spent years hiding on the Thai border working as a teacher and at some point converted to Christianity. He was eventually discovered working with an aid organisation through a chance meeting with a journalist.

It’s taken 30 years for this verdict. The trial of the other two remaining senior figures is ongoing.
