Located in Phnom Penh, the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (or Khmer Rouge Tribunal) was established to bring to justice ‘senior leaders and those most responsible’ for crimes committed in Cambodia during Khmer Rouge rule (1975-1979). Over the last 10+ years, the tribunal has opened investigations into five cases, completed three trials and sentenced three individuals to life imprisonment.
More than 300,000 Cambodians have visited the Court and many more have followed the proceedings on radio and television.
