Phnom Penh: Journalists must understand clearly and be carefully about using words in their article and they should know themselves that how should they report the Khmer Rouge tribunal? it is because that if we report wrongly or unclearly, it will lead to misunderstandings, Barbara Crossette, president of Independent Journalism Foundation (IJF), told the 14 trainees who are the journalists and Non-Governmental Organizations’ officials in the closing ceremony of a training course on Khmer Rouge tribunal reporting at the Royal University of Phnom Penh on January 18, 2008.
“This training course is very important in providing knowledge to the journalists about professional journalism and about the Khmer Rouge tribunal reporting.

It should be noticed that the training course were conducted for 10 days starting from 8 to 18 January 2008 and was organized by the IJF. Everyday the trainees listened to the presentations by experienced journalism speakers, Khmer Rouge tribunal’s officials, and civil society organizations’ officials.

Meanwhile, the trainees also conducted study tours to the Khmer Rouge tribunal, the Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam), and Tuol Sleng and Cheung Aek Genocide Museums, which are the remaining traces of mass killings during the Democratic Kampuchea regime.
