Here are the graves in Anlong Veng of two of the most prominent Khmer Rouge leaders: Pol Pot and Ta Mok. Both men were responsible for mass killings – yet one of them is still being honored by many in the local community. Who do you think?
What an odd contrast Cambodia can be: On the same day as torture chief Duch publicly asked the people for forgiveness, prime minister Hun Sen did everything he could to obstruct the Khmer Rouge tribunal.
As head of Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot was responsible for the deaths of up to 2 million people. Yet Kong Duong, who worked closely with him in the 1980s, describes Pol Pot’s personality as far from that of a monster.
