Victims of the Khmer Rouge who have been waiting for justice since 1979 may only have to wait a few months more, with the court announcing yesterday that a verdict in the first subtrial of its flagship Case 002 will be read on August 7.

Case 002/01 – brought against former Khmer Rouge head of state Khieu Samphan and the regime’s second-in-command, Nuon Chea – began in November 2011 and dealt primarily with the regime’s policy of emptying cities, particularly Phnom Penh after its fall in 1975, as well as the executions of officials from the preceding regime that immediately followed.

Believe it when you see it.

A slap on the wrist for genocide. Nice deterrent.
Oh, Carruthers, if you can hear me, wave your antennae.
