Bangkok, Thailand. Millions of people worldwide are familiar with one of the worst genocides in recent history in Cambodia’s “killing fields,” but the so called “justice” meeted out by the UN and it’s liberal democratic NWO patrons is being exposed now as a complete sham and waste of billions of dollars to try only three people.
Despite spending more than a decade and nearly $300 million, the United Nations backed tribunal prosecuting the genocide crimes of the Khmer Rouge has convicted only three men.
It is now highly likely they will be the only people to answer in court for the deaths of at least 1.7 million Cambodians from 1975 to 1979 in one of the worst episodes of mass murder in the last century.
“From the start, the Cambodian government had a very different idea about how many people would be tried, and their view appears to be prevailing,” said Alexander Hinton, an anthropology professor at Rutgers University-Newark. “The court’s legacy will be tainted and greatly diminished if it fails to try further cases.”
Of the three people convicted, two were members of the highest leadership of the radical Communist regime: Nuon Chea, 90, who was No. 2 in the hierarchy, and Khieu Samphan, 85, the chief of state. They were sentenced to life in prison for crimes against humanity and are undergoing yet again a separate trial for genocide and other crimes.The third person convicted Kaing Guek Eav, known as Duch, who commanded a Khmer Rouge prison, was also sentenced to life in prison for crimes against humanity.
Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen has opposed further indictments, suggesting that an expanded trial would lead to civil war. Foreign Minister Hor Namhong has said flatly that further indictments “will not be allowed.”
