The Man Who Got Duch, sort of...(Part 2)

Aaron Leverton

The facts of Duch's capture are well documented. He was "discovered" living in north-western Cambodia by photographer Nic Dunlop, he was interviewed by Dunlop and Nate Thayer and shortly after their story was published, he was arrested by the Cambodian military.

While the ECCC examines the legal ramifications of the detention that followed that arrest, Nic Dunlop, who started the whole process, looks at the philosophical questions the trial gives rise to.

Green Vespa Review

The Phnom Pen

After many return visits this year, I have decided this is one of my favourite bars in Phnom Penh. When I started reading website postings about what makes a good bar in Phnom Penh, many people said it was the man behind the bar ( does anyone know a female bar owner in Phnom Penh ? ) and in the Green Vespa's case, this is particularly true. Alan is a consummate professional and I reckon he probably knew he wanted to be a barman at the age of four.

Skate park for Phnom Penh up for grabs

Bronwyn Sloan

Cambodia hosted two sporting greats for a few days this week. One, Sir Bobby Charlton, captured most of the attention, but skateboard legend Tony Hawk was not just along for the ride.

At 70, Sir Bobby belied his age and taught kids for Phnom Penh to Battambang the finer points of football during his three-day visit. Not only that, but both men risked life and limb (and what brave insurer would put a collective value on that calibre of limb?) touring mined countryside to promote land mine awareness and the scale of Cambodia's problem with the deadly tools of war to the rest of the world.
