Cambodia tribunal instils hope for justice

Listen /

Nicholas Koumijian

It's six years now since the UN–backed Cambodia tribunal was established to bring to trial senior leaders and those most responsible for genocide and war crimes committed during the Khmer rouge regime which lasted from 1975 to 1979.

So far, only one person has been convicted by the tribunal, which is expected to deliver its verdict on the trial of three other former leaders sometime in 2014.

Patrick Maigua sat down with Nicholas Koumijian, the International Co-Prosecutor at the Cambodia tribunal, to learn more about the proceedings.

Winter clothing is being sent to the UN-run Za’atri refugee camp in Jordan to clothe up to 50,000 people who have fled the ongoing conflict in neighbouring Syria.

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) is working with a Japanese NGO and company to ensure that refugees are able to stay warm through the region's harsh winter.
