The trial of the chief of Khmer Rouge’s most notorious torture centre finally signals the possibility of accountability for millions of Cambodians who for 30 years have been denied justice, truth and reparations for crimes committed during the Khmer Rouge period. On 30 March 2009, the “Extraordinary Chambers” set up in the Courts of Cambodia to address Khmer Rouge atrocities will hold the initial substantive hearing in its first trial. In this document Amnesty International makes recommendations to the Extraordinary Chambers, the United Nations and the Cambodian government.
