KR victims to file fresh complaints

About 100 Khmer Rouge victims plan to file more complaints against the five former regime leaders in the custody of the UN-backed tribunal. On Friday, local rights group Adhoc held a seminar to discuss reparations for regime survivors. "On behalf of the victims, Adhoc appeals to the ECCC, the Cambodian government and the international community to hear the voice of the victims of the KR regime and reflect on the needs of victims," the group said in a press release. Survivor Chum Mey, 77, said by phone that Khmer Rouge victims must exercise their right to seek individual compensation. "Poor victims who file complaints against the former KR leaders should get a small amount of money," Chum Mey said. "We are poor and our mental health has suffered from the tortures of their regime."
