Abstract

The tribunal set up jointly by Cambodia and the Untied Nations to try Khmer Rouge figures has used internationally defined offenses exclusively in the prosecutions conducted to date. This review essay argues that most of these charges are not legally sustainable, and that the tribunal would have been better advised to charge under the domestic penal law of Cambodia.
