“Reconciliation for me is easy, I want all the leaders to answer for the deeds they committed”: Sum Rithy

Government Can Help in Tribunal Reconciliation: Monitor

Sok Khemara, VOA Khmer
Washington, DC Friday, 06 August 2010


Compensation for victims of the Khmer Rouge is in part a responsibility of the government, a tribunal monitor said Thursday.

“Because the state has an obligation to take responsibility for all kinds of people's suffering,” said Lat Ky, a court monitor for the rights group Adhoc, as a guest on “Hello VOA.”

Many victims were disappointed with the UN-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal's sentencing of prison chief Duch last week. He received a commuted sentence of 19 years for supervising the torture and execution of more than 12,000 people.

Victims who lost family in the infamous prison say they want a stupa erected with the names of the dead. Lat Ky said a stupa would help.

“Even if the verdict is a [court] order, how do we make the victims mentally reconcile, fix their suffering, and find justice for them?” he said. “That's more important than the complexities that the judges are thinking.”

Sum Rithy, a 57-year-old who has filed grievances in both the Duch case and the upcoming Case No. 002, said he was disappointed he saw no compensation in the Duch verdict.

“Reconciliation for me is easy,” he said. “I want all the leaders to answer for the deeds they committed.”

The Khmer Rouge victims in S21 have received all of the attention right now. Let us not forget that there are many more KR victims who were not in S21.

Also some of the KR victims in S21 had been killers themselves before being arrested by their own masters.

I feel much better if case 002 and 003 be summoned by the tribunal. In addition to that, the CPP gov't must not be interfered with the court's duty.

I still think monetary compensation for the surviving victims are of some help.It would be much better than this UN backing "justice for some." UN has some value, but they have an agenda for bringing the New World Order into fulfillment. Once that is in place, freedom of speech and private property is become illegal. People will be own by the government run by the elitists and the rest are servants to the state.

Agitation and conflicts are some of the tools that are being implement to keep a country in instability so the elite can introduce the 'third' way to solve the problem.

A good example I think is the Preah Vehear issue with Thailand.
Since that ancient temple was granted UNESCO status, troubles errupted between Cambodia and Thailand.Also the issue with Vietnam border. If the UN is so interested in a peaceful world; why hasn't they step in to settle these issues? It could be the greater interest of the UN is to see Vietnam ceded Cambodia as part of their territory. By allowing these issues to continue is a ploy to wear down the will of the people until they surrender to the will of the elitist. So, how much of the problems in the world are created by these 'elitist' to bring the world to their subjection? Alot!

People who control the monetary system will able to control its people it doesn't matter what laws of the land is in the book; money speaks! A person will not able to buy or sell without the mark of the BEAST. Lost freedom right there. People are being groom to accept this totaliterian kind of dictatorship right now. The technology to bring this about is insight where you and I will be control by a faceless governance.

I found some tracking device on my cloth one time. I knew what it was and rip it off the clothing. Its not freedom when government start to put tracking devices on ordinary citizens.

Don't believe the lie that this world is getting better and better because of science; no, its not, the opposite is true. Through science they can control a person to be a robot.

Here is the true hope--the kingdom of Satan will be destroy by the kingdom of a Jewish Messiah. The issues in the world is about a kingdom conflict. Since God is just and good he allows the right of Satan to do his bidding and you as (unbeliever) can choose to follow his kingdom concept (UN) and all other organizations that are trying to bring a peaceable kingdom to this earth by man's wisdom and philosophy are calling for a united religions but those who knows their God will not join in. By the truth of the Scripture, the God of all gods has alloted a time (six thousand years) for Satan to rule and reign on this earth and after that; God will judge him and all that follows him. And God will take back his own kingdom from the evil one and he will reign supreme forever and ever. There will be a time for repentant for you heathens that have not come to the faith in a Jewish Messiah before God closes the door of opportunity to be part of his kingdom. Be ready to repent when that time comes. This world is about to experience a catastrophic cosmic shaking of the heaven and the earth that humankind has ever known. You think the flooding in different parts of the world right now is bad, waiting until God rings his alarm bell for the world to wake up to his impending judgment. And you better wake up or be destroy by his power. The bravest of person will piss in their pants when God roars.
