Cambodia, A Survived LandThe contrast of a newspaper stand selling magazines which reflect traditions and modernism near by a temple where some sacral monuments are adorned in different colors. The sign indicate the rates to make a phone call although most of the population own a mobile phoneStatement
Cambodians can today see a light at the end of a long, dark and sorrowful tunnel. The trials of Khmer Rouge leaders at the Khmer Rouge Tribunal (KRT) have finally arrived after a three-decade long wait. Anonymous shadowy figures who ordered the death and torture of family members, and who were directly responsible for the deaths of millions of others through overwork, starvation and forced migration will now be seen finally climbing the steps of the witness stand to face legal retribution for ordering unspeakable crimes against humanity. The time has come for Cambodia to cleanse itself of its sorrowful past says Youk Chhang, the director of the Documentary Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam), which has played a critical role in assembling the millions of documents meticulously gathered by the communist regime which will be now used as evidence against the regime's leaders.
