Selected International Interviews Honoring the Family of Chanrithy Him and the Victims of the Khmer Rouge
On January 7, 2004, the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia, and the overthrow of the Khmer Rouge, the BBC’s “World Today” interviewed Chanrithy Him from her home in Eugene, Oregon.
On the same day as the above interview, “World Today” aired an interview with Chanrithy Him and Brad Adams, Asia Director of “Human Rights Watch” in New York City. The discussion centered on why the perpetrators of the Khmer Rouge genocide had never been tried and brought to justice.
Below is BBC’s “World Today” interview with Chanrithy Him and Dr. Craig Etcheson, Visiting Scholar at Johns Hopkins University in Washington D.C. and Adviser for the Documentation Center of Cambodian. Again, the subject is why the perpetrators of the Khmer Rouge genocide had not been brought to justice.
