KR trial

Dear Editor,

I feel like I want to cry to die after having heard that the UN decided to withdraw

its participation in Khmer Rouge trial process. During the Khmer Rouge time I lost

a father, a brother and more than 20 relatives including children. The loss is still

affecting my family's life, especially my mother. She has been paralyzed until today

as a result of this most hated regime, and so have other people.

The destruction of Cambodia, the poverty and the existing complex problems today

that rates Cambodia 30 years back compared to other ASEAN members are also parts

of the results of this regime.

Bringing those who are responsible for the suffering and the destruction of Cambodia

to a real justice will help reduce long lasting pains that have never ever gone away

from the soul of Cambodian people.

We do need compensation.

- Sou Sophorn Nara, Phnom Penh
