Pol Yat
, female, age 68. Interviewed in Kraing Leav village.
Pol Yat stated that she suffered from the hard working conditions imposed on her during the

people in her village killing Khmer Rouge cooperative chiefs soon after the Khmer Rouge

should consider reparations and compensation for the victims of the Khmer Rouge regime
