Cambodia: Fear for safety: Kang Kek Leu, aka Ta Pin, aka Duch

, Index number: ASA 23/008/1999

Former Khmer Rouge official Kang Kek Ieu has admitted to involvement in torture, murder and crimes against humanity during the period of the Democratic Kampuchea (Khmer Rouge) government in Cambodia (1975 - 1979) in an interview in the Far Eastern Economic Review published on 29 April 1999. Amnesty International fears he may be killed to stop him testifying against others involved in crimes against humanity under the Khmer Rouge.
