Cambodia: New allegations of extrajudicial killings by the Partie of Democratic Kampuchea (“Khmer Rouge”)

Amnesty International obtained information in December 1990 alleging that security forces of the Partie of Democratic Kampuchea (“Khmer Rouge”)had executed some 30 members of its armed forces, the National Army of Democratic Kampuchea (NADK), on 27 July 1990. They were alleged to be the ringleaders of a movement within the army which was demanding greater personal and economic freedom. Some 70 others suspected of being followers of those allegedly killed are said to have been detained and severely ill- treated during interrogation by NADK military police. It is not known whether the 70 are still being held; some or all of them have possibly been released.
