The last two survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime have been sentenced to life in prison for genocide. But it’s a half victory because the special court for Cambodia hasn’t recognized the immense “auto-genocide” committed between 1975 and 1978 by those fanatical Maoists. The reason has to do with their powerful foreign supporters.
1,2 million Chinese visit Cambodia every year. However, most of them follow a different itinerary from Western visitors and avoid the “killing fields” and the memories of Communist genocide. They would be confronted with disturbing news about the CCP’s responsibilities in the tragedy.
