A UN-sponsored Khmer Rouge tribunal in Cambodia is currently trying two surviving former Khmer Rouge leaders, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea. After its inception 12 years ago the tribunal has sentenced one mid-level leader to life in prison. Critics say the tribunal has moved too slowly.
Im Chaem ended up serving as a district chief who allegedly supervised large-scale slave labor and mass killings, according to prosecutors at the Khmer Rouge tribunal, who spent years trying to charge her with crimes against humanity.
Beginning late last month, the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum, which is now administered by the Ministry of Culture, began a multi-year project to conserve 3,000 to 5,000 cloth artifacts, funded with a $55,000 grant from the U.S. government.
