US Embassy Welcomes the Approval of Khmer Rouge Tribunal Law - 2004-10-05


The US embassy in Phnom Penh welcomes the ratification of the UN-Cambodian agreement to put the former Khmer Rouge leaders on trial.

The Cambodian lawmakers on Tuesday approved legal amendments to enable an internationally assisted tribunal to try surviving Khmer Rouge leaders for atrocities during their 1970s rule.

Yesterday they endorsed a U.N.-backed plan to create the judicial panel.
