KRT Trial Monitor C001 – Issue 3 (Week Ending 12 April 2009)

This week’s proceedings at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal centered on the character of the Accused Person and the history of his involvement with the communist party. After briefly focussing on Duch’s early life and susbequent incarceration as a political prisoner, the Chamber considered his role as the Head of M-13 – a security prison established in 1971, primarily to interrogate and execute “enemies” of the party. Pursuant to the Chamber’s scheduling order, which sees it examining evidence under topic headings rather than through witnesses, Duch’s testimony on M-13 was followed by witnesses François Bizot and Uch Sorn, both former detainees at the prison. The Chamber is due to hear another witness on M-13 before proceedings turn to the substance of the Closing Order – namely, the Accused Person’s role at S-21.
