The sixteenth week of trial at the KRT proceeded on schedule, with the Chamber’s decision to have certain witness statements read into the record in lieu of witness testimony increasing the overall expeditiousness of proceedings. In addition to five testimonies that were read into the record, the Chamber heard from three former S-21 staff from Monday to Wednesday. Expert witness David Chandler then took the stand on Thursday, largely testifying on his book Voices from S-21: Terror and History in Pol Pot’s Secret Prison.
