Correction

T wo lines in the original text of Steven Heder's "The debate to

etch history in stone" (Phnom Penh Post, June 16 - 29 pg 19) were missing from

the published version.

a new, full-scale PDK genocide in Cambodia. Instead, this danger has receded,

although genocidal acts and other egregious human rights abuses by the PDK

continue. As for the human rights picture in Cambodia more generally, Kiernan's

studied avoidance of SoC's human rights record means he is unable to deal with

the implications of the real results of the implementation of the Agrements for

human rights in most of Cambodia."
