PHNOM PENH - Jailed Khmer Rouge leader Khieu Samphan worked to encourage children to help overthrow the US-backed government of Lon Nol, a witness told the UN-backed tribunal Tuesday.

Kim Vun, 53, who worked in a Khmer Rouge printing house, said Khieu Samphan, who would become the nominal head of the regime, visited the printing house often to give advice to its workers.

Khieu Samphan is on trial alongside Nuon Chea and Ieng Sary for atrocity crimes committed by Khmer Rouge under their leadership.

Kim Vun said Tuesday that Khieu Samphan, known as Brother Hem, would bring vegetables and food to the printing house and encouraged resistance to the Lon Nol regime for the sake of the then-deposed monarch Norodom Sihanouk.

“He called for success on every battlefield and called on villagers in liberated areas, as well as cadre, to assist and support each other, from the front lines of the battlefield and behind the lines of the battlefield,” Kim Vun told the court.
