Crimes against humanity, A former Khemr Rouge prison chief in front of court

Today, no matter where we live, as a responsible world's citizen, we all are concerned about the crimes committed against humanity anywhere in the world. The establishment of the International Court of Justice by the United Nation is an evidence of the fact.

Kang Kek Ieu, Duch, is a former Khemr Rouge prison chief who used to be in charge of the notorious S21 jail in the Cambodia's capital, Phnom Penh. The prosecutors of the court have asked to investigate him over his role in the brutal Khemr Rouge era.

This story and the talks about the notorious S21 jail, refreshed my memory of the notorious S209 of the Evin jail in Tehran, Iran!
