35 years of prison time for Kaeng Kek Iev – better known as
Duch – is strange.  Iev, a prison chief
in Cambodia’s
notorious torture prison S-21 during the reign of the Khmer Rouge, is
responsible for the violent and untimely death of about 14000 people.  

He is the first person ever to stand trial and receive
verdict for his crimes during the genocide in 1975-79.
