Veteran journalist and book author Elizabeth Becker will appear at the Khmer Rouge tribunal as an expert witness in Case 002/02 hearings from Monday to Wednesday next week, the court has announced. Becker, a former New York Times and Washington Post correspondent, was one of the few Western journalists to visit Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime.

Becker will be questioned on topics beyond the Kraing Ta Chan security centre and Tram Kok work cooperative that proceedings are focusing on, a court spokesman said.
