In 2006, Cambodia’s highest judicial body approved a long-awaited UN-backed tribunal to prosecute all surviving Khmer Rouge leaders for genocidal atrocities committed between April 1975 and January 1979. Alex Bates served for three years as one of the tribunal’s international prosecutors, and witnessed firsthand the successes, failures and frustrations of the first years of the the tribunal’s existence. He provides a cogent analysis of the limitations of international justice, as well as unique personal insights into the day-to-day complications of corruption, media distortion, failures of communication and the repeated political subversion of due process.
