Transcription

The Khmer Rouge, Pol Pot, and Khieu Samphan and Ta Mok, Ieng Sary, all those big people should be held accountable for what they did. What they did was they starve the whole country. They starve the whole country and they torture the whole country. And I think that they should at least pay for what they did.

They took away—they took away my youth. They took away the dignity, and they took away everything I believe for. They rip it apart. They shred the family to pieces. They took away a lot of lives. And for that, I think, that they should be held accountable for what they did.
