Cambodia reiterates Khmer Rouge tribunal’s work is complete

Sar Kheng says UN-backed war crimes court has no need to prosecute anyone beyond the Khmer Rouge senior leadership.

Cambodia has reiterated it intends to end the work of the UN-backed tribunal that last week convicted the last two surviving leaders of the Khmer Rouge of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

Deputy Prime Minister Sar Kheng said the tribunal’s work had been completed and there would be no more prosecutions for acts committed when the Khmer Rouge was in power from 1975 to 1979.
