Victim and Witness Protection Standards for the Khmer Rouge Tribunal and Beyond

Signature ceremony of the grant on 12 December 2006
Co-funded by the European Commission and the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation, the project consists of police training on victim and witness protection according to international standards, the outreach on the process of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal and the advocacy for international standards of the process.

Besides the police training, outreach activities will be carried out by an extensive network of 120 citizen advisors in 7 provinces: Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, Seamreap, Battambang, Prey Veng, Svay Rieng and Kratie. The citizen advisors disseminate information about witness protection, reparation and victims' participation. Furthermore, the citizen advisors will give the rural population a regular update on the Tribunal's activities and proceedings.

The project will thus contribute to the protection of victims' rights, to the promotion of justice and to the well functioning of the Tribunal's witness and victim protection program.
