Cambodia: A Quest for Justice

Event Date:
December 7, 2010
For 30 years since the demise of the Khmer Rouge regime, in which one-quarter of Cambodia’s population perished, its victims waited for justice. This past July, a UN-backed tribunal found Kaing Guek Eav, commonly known as Duch, a former prison warden of the Khmer Rouge, guilty of crimes against humanity and war crimes for overseeing the torture and killing of thousands of prisoners. 
"Cambodia: A Quest for Justice," from the UNTV series 21st Century, tells the emotional story of two men: one who lost his wife and children and survived torture; the other, the head of a notorious Rouge prison, who was found guilty by the tribunal.  Join us for a fascinating and haunting look inside the first case heard by this unique court, followed by an in-depth discussion about the broader significance of the trial.
Event copresented by Open Society Foundations, the Asia Society, and the UN Foundation.
