This week, the Chamber and Parties proceeded to question the Accused on “The Implementation of CPK Policy at S-21” and the “Armed Conflict Between Vietnam and Cambodia” – two topic areas directly related to the charges Duch faces in the Closing Order. The Accused Person’s testimony on the former has been extensively explored with witnesses during previous weeks, and as such, did not appear to reveal any novel evidence. Consistent with his prior testimony, Duch further maintained that any active role he took to ensure the effective operation of S-21 was motivated by his fear of reprisal from the upper echelons of the command structure.
