Remarks Related to Reparation Case 002/01 and Non-Judicial Measures:

Following a meeting between Civil Parties and lawyers, she said she was satisfied of the 13 reparation projects in Case 002/01, because in the past those projects have responded to what the Civil Parties requested. The reparation projects that she was most satisfied with is the National Remembrance Day project. This national remebrance day aims to create the official national day of memory to remember the victims and the survivors from Khmer Rouge regime. The Royal Government of Cambodia has already agreed in principle to create this National Remembrance Day.  According to Ms. Sakhân, if there is no day for memory, the next generations will forget the painful atrocities during the Khmer Rouge regime. For Case 002/02, she requested to include Centers for Elders in other provinces for elders who lived through the Khmer Rouge regime.
