S-21 survivors to testify in coming weeks

According to a tentative schedule released by the court, the much-anticipated testimony of survivors of S-21 will begin around Tuesday, June 30. One witness will be slated to testify each day.

Of course, such scheduling is generally only a rough outline, but the chamber has been trying to expedite proceedings. In fact, proposed time limits on questioning have met with opposition from Comrade Duch's defense team.

Parties continued questioning Duch himself today about operations of S-21.

* In other news: A recent New York Times article describes the Duch team's defense strategy and portrays the former torture chief as a man still proud, in some ways, of the important position he once held.Â
