This is the 37th ‘Facing Justice’ program, a series of weekly TV reports (English subtitles) about ‘Case 002′, the current trial of former Khmer Rouge senior leaders.
Nuon Chea (‘Brother Number Two’), Khieu Samphan (Head of State) and Ieng Sary (Foreign Minister) are accused of atrocious crimes including Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes.
‘Facing Justice’, shown on Cambodia’s top TV channel (CTN), gives a summary of the week’s highlights, with explanations to help its mainly rural audience understand the legal issues arising during the trial.
The broadcast is followed by a radio call-in program on the state channel RNK in which viewers can put questions on what they have seen to experts.
Programs 1 to 27 were funded by the US Department of State. Programs 28-34 were funded by the British Embassy, Phnom Penh. Programs 35-37 are funded by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Phnom Penh.
