Khmer Rouge Tribunal and Beyond

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
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.
