With the sustained efforts of the Chamber to conduct proceedings expeditiously, four testimonies were heard throughout the week. Mr. Suong Sikoeun, a high-ranking cadre from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), and Ms. Sa Siek, an artist attached to the Ministry of Propaganda and Education, concluded their testimony from the previous week. A new witness, Mr. Kim Vun, testified about his experience as a child worker at the party’s printing house, and later, as a photographer and writer in the Ministry of Propaganda and Education. Kim Vun completed his testimony in two trial days, giving time for the Chamber to begin hearing the testimony of Civil Party Mr. Em Oeun, who practiced medicine during the DK. He testified about medical practices during the DK and the policies that were implemented during the period.
