More information about the infamous ‘Duch’ here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-10685769.He 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.
