Kang Kek Iew Death | Obituary | Kang Kek Iew Dead | Died | Funeral Plans – We heard about the great loss, that Kang Kek Iew is no more and has reportedly passed away. We are made to known about his death on September 2, 2020.
Kang Kek Iew was a Cambodian war criminal and leader in the Khmer Rouge movement, which ruled Democratic Kampuchea from 1975 to 1979. As the head of the government’s internal security branch (Santebal), he oversaw the Tuol Sleng (S-21) prison camp where thousands were held for interrogation and torture, after which the vast majority of these prisoners were eventually executed.
Kang Kek Iew died at the age of 71-year-old. He was the first Khmer Rouge leader to be tried by the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia for the crimes of the Khmer Rouge regime, and was convicted of crimes against humanity, murder, and torture for his role during the Khmer Rouge rule of Cambodia and sentenced to 30 years’ imprisonment. On 2 February 2012, his sentence was extended to life imprisonment by the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia.
Even though he was responsible for the death of thousands of people, Kang Kek Iew, unlike other Khmer Rouge cadres, did not dismiss or justify his crimes. He admitted that he had been wrong and that he had done horrible things; he said that he repented and that he had converted to Christianity. During his trial, he provided detailed accounts of what happened inside S-21 and inside the Khmer Rouge regime, and this helped shed light on the regime and other cadres’ responsibility.
We mourn with the family of Kang Kek Iew for this great loss. Please received our heartfelt condolences.
For every start of a journey, there must be an end. His journey has sadly come to an end on earth.
