Search for S-21 child prisoners begins

THE Documentation Centre of Cambodia (DC-Cam) is currently searching for five former child detainees at Tuol Sleng prison, which recently donated video footage from Vietnam suggests might still be alive.

The centre, which obtained the footage in December, says the children would now be in their 30s or 40s and, if found, could provide first-hand evidence of the crimes that occurred in the torture centre at the upcoming trial of the prison's chief, Kaing Guek Eav.

"We knew about them many years ago. The films have confirmed it," Youk Chhang, the centre's director, told the Post Thursday.
