Breaking: KR teacher training offices approved

The Ministry of Education Youth and Sport has approved a request from the Documentation Centre of Cambodia (DC-Cam) to set up a research office and library in the Prey Veng provincial teacher training centre.

The ministry has allowed DC-Cam to use the teacher training centre in Prey Veng to set up an "Office of Research and Khmer Rouge Documents Library", says a letter to DC-Cam signed by Minister of Education, Youth and Sport Hang Chuon Naron and dated August 15.

The office will serve as a centre for research on the history of the Khmer Rouge for both prospective teachers and students.

Pong-Rasy Pheng, the director of the Prey Veng Documentation Centre and Genocide Research and Education in Cambodia, said on Tuesday that the creation of the office was part of a reparations project by the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) in Case 002.
