Rob Hamill's post-testimony interview

It reads in part

New Zealander Rob Hamill strongly rejects the headlines circulating in world media claiming he wishes to kill Duch, the Khmer Rouge commander of the camp where his brother Kerry was murdered in 1978.

In his testimony to the Extraordinary Court Chambers of Cambodia yesterday, Mr Hamill said he had at times in the past thirty-one years imagined Duch suffering the same torture inflicted on so many people, but he has never wanted to action those terrible thoughts. Mr Hamill made it clear yesterday that he is never going to give in to those feelings, that the testimony itself was part of the healing process and he was pushing the emotional burden of the crimes back on to Duch.
