    The long and troubled proceedings towards the leaders of Cambodia’s brutal Khmer Rouge came to a head this week in Phnom Penh.

    The two remaining survivors from the regime’s leadership, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea, known as Pol Pot’s brother number two, are charged with crimes against humanity in one of the worst mass-crimes in history.

    Between 1975 and 1979, nearly one quarter of the entire Cambodian population died.

    Both perpetrators vigorously deny all charges. The verdict is expected to be handed down in 2014, and the prosecution is demanding life in prison for both defendants. The bigger challenge will be if the panel of international and Cambodian judges can provide justice for a country which has changed enormously, but is still struggling to shake off the scars of its brutal past.

    IPSTV Correspondent Scott Craig reports from Phnom Penh.
