It is perhaps one of the last acts of a long legal process for crimes committed more than 40 years ago in Cambodia. On Monday August 16, the last senior Khmer Rouge official still alive, Khieu Samphan, will be judged on appeal for “genocide“.

The Khmer Rouge had left some two million Cambodians dead overwork, starvation and mass executions from 1975 to 1979.

The hearing against the former head of state of the 90-year-old regime will be held until August 19.
