— The victims support section of the UN-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal will hold a seminar next week to help survivors and lawyers prepare for the final phase of a trial against two former regime leaders.
 
The second phase of an atrocity crimes trial against Nuon Chea, the regime’s ideologue, and Khieu Samphan, its head of state, is expected at the end of the year.
 
The upcoming phase will cover crimes that include genocide and will focus on security centers, work cooperatives, purges, forced marriage and crimes against ethnic minorities such as the Muslim Cham and Vietnamese.
 
Officials at the Victims Support Section said in a statement Wednesday that they want to hear from lawyers and victims, as well as donors, as they discuss the upcoming trial phase.
 
Tribunal spokesman Neth Pheaktra said the court wants to hear from civil party parties, particularly about their needs for reparation.

Protesters Again Demand Vietnamese Apology Over Kampuchea Kromi

21 July 2014
Thousands of demonstrators, including students and monks, gathered in front of the Vietnamese Embassy on Monday, calling again for an apology for alleged remarks made about Vietnam’s ownership of the Mekong Delta. Many Cambodians remain angered that the area, called Kampuchea Krom, or Lower Cambodia, in Khmer, was partitioned to Vietnam by the French in 1949. The region, called Cochinchina by the French, was ruled by various Vietnamese factions since the mid-1600s, before it was colonized by the French in 1862. The region was merged into Southern Vietnam by the Geneva Accords in 1954. (Khoun Theara, Phnom Penh)
