Nov 23: Phnom Penh

Congratulations to the Cambodian Center for Human Rights for having the courage to screen Who Killed Chea Vichea? in Phnom Penh.

The screening took place on the International Day to End Impunity, November 23. It reminds us that although Born Samnang and Sok Sam Oeun, the two men falsely convicted and imprisoned for the murder of Chea Vichea, are finally free, the real killers have still never been identified or prosecuted.

Who Killed Chea Vichea? examines the case and demonstrates that Cambodian authorities from the police on up were instrumentally involved in the murder. This case and many others show that impunity is still the rule in Cambodia. It must end.

Read the story at Radio Free Asia (English translation here).
