Unbalanced

To the editor,

I would like to correct the impression left by John

Holloway's letter (Phnom Penh Post Jan 27-Feb 9.)

The point of the article I

wrote about Tuol sleng in the Sydney Morning Herald on 5 January was that a team

of photographers had saved evidence of the Khmer Rouge atrocities, which could

be used in the event of any future trial of Pol Pot and his cohorts. It was not,

as Mr. Holloway claimed, written as if the atrocities committed at Tuol Sleng

were a current news story.

Mr. Holloway's description of the Australian

media's reporting on Cambodia as "totally unbalanced" is absurd.

No

Australian journalist has written a piece as damning about Cambodia as Mr

Holloway's own cable to Canberra, which was leaked to the Sydney Morning Herald

last year and later published at length in the Phnom Penh Post.
