Former S21 photographer to found political party

Former Khmer Rouge photographer at Tuol Sleng detention centre, also known as S21, Nhem En, is to form another political party after the first one failed.

The Ministry of Interior on Friday released a notification to Nhem En, giving him the green light to form the Prosperous Laborers Party as per his request.

He claimed to form the party with a district governor and other formers officials without the intention “to burn the house of other people”.

Pledging to start from reforming the small things, En said: “We will criticise the government but not in a desperate way. I will focus on resolving the environmental and drug issues … these are minor issues that we have not even been able to solve.”
