(Dec 02, 2007) International media have reported the first public hearing of the Genocide Tribunal of Cambodia. It was a request for bail by Kang Kek Ieu, the former head of the Tuol Sleng prison in Phnom Penh. The tribunal is supported by the United Nations and has a mandate to try surviving Khmer Rouge leaders. Further trials of alleged former Khmer Rouge leaders are expected to be held in 2008.
