THE CHAIN OF TERROR: The Khmer Rouge Southwest Zone Security System, Ea Meng-Try (2005)

The Khmer Rouge security (prison) system was set up at virtually every political level throughout Democratic Kampuchea. This monograph examines the structure of the security  system in the regime’s Southwest Zone, which was considered a model for the revolution, but contained over 250 security centers (DC-Cam has located over 6,000 mass grave sites in this zone). It examines the execution chain at the sub-district, district, region, and zone levels, and the relationships of the centers within the zone.
