Illinois State Senator Visits Cambodia

Senator Jeff Schoenberg visits the Extraordinary Cambers in the Court of Cambodia (ECCC) and the Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) Monday to assess progress Cambodia has made with the trials of former Khmer Rouge leaders.

“I think they are doing the best, given the financial constraint that they operate under. They certainly could use more resources to not only bring about justice more swiftly and fairly, but also to transmit those messages and those proceedings throughout the entire world”, said Mr. Schoenberg at a press conference.

Khmer Rouge Tribunal spokesman, Reach Sambath welcomes the senator's visit, and hopes that the visit will generate more media attention outside the country.
