Executions feared in Kratie

Human rights groups fear that more than 30 people have recently been executed by

military in Kratie province.

An Aug 16 press release from the Cambodian Human Rights Action Committee said six

people have been confirmed dead from extrajudicial killings and 25 were still missing.

However, a human rights worker said the numbers of confirmed dead and missing were

constantly increasing.

The dead and missing were reportedly accused of being members of the Khmer Serei

movement, which was last year said to be responsible for banditry and attacks on

military bases in the area.

Human rights workers also speculate that the dead and missing were Funcinpec soldiers

who failed to integrate after the fighting in 1997. The majority who disappeared

were 18 or 19 years old.
