Chhouk Rin faces court

The Supreme Court will decide on February 16 whether to uphold a life sentence

meted out to former Khmer Rouge commander Chhouk Rin in 2002.

Rin was

sentenced for his part in leading a 1994 train robbery, in which 13 Cambodians

were murdered and three foreigners kidnapped then later killed.

He had

earlier been set free in 2000 by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court under an amnesty

for former KR leaders.

Rin has said he would attend the hearing despite

not showing at a 2003 Court of Appeal hearing, where his conviction was upheld.
