March 19: Cambodia and their Tribunals
In 2001 the Cambodian National Assembly passed a law to create the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia for the Prosecution of Crimes Committed during the Period of Democratic Kampuchea. For regular citizens of Cambodia these proceedings are beyond their means, financially and emotionally. After over 30 years of war and genocide the citizens of Cambodia are focused on their survival, not engaging in judicial proceedings. We talk with Bhavia Wagner, Executive Director of Friends of Cambodia, and Activist Lawyer and Asian Reporter Columnist Polo, as well as share audio from the documentary Cambodian Culture: Death Of A Sideshow: Reclaiming The Shattered Past - produced by Barbara Bernstein in 1987.
