Legal Comment - Eventual Justice: The Trial of Guek Eav Kaing in the Extraordiary Chambers of the Courts of Cambodia


This legal comment was written for submission to the Tulane Journal of International and Comparative Law and analyzes various aspects of the first criminal proceeding against a former high-raking official in the Khymer Rouge regime (AKA Comrade Duch). The comment focuses on the politics involved between the Extraordinary Courts of Cambodia, a national war crimes tribunal organized and financially backed by the United Nations. The article also explores the corruption, collective national hearing, media coverage, and international response related to the trial, in which Comrade Duch was recently sentenced 19 years for the atrocities committed at the S-21 prison camp outside of Phnom Penh, Cambodia during the mid to late 1970s.
