Has Ties to the Community

What's left of it, anyway:
The senior surviving leader of Cambodia's Khmer Rouge regime has appeared in court to appeal against his detention by a genocide tribunal.

Nuon Chea, who faces charges of crimes against humanity, requested bail on the grounds he was not a flight risk.

....Nuon Chea was deputy to Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot, under whose brutal four-year rule more than one million people are believed to have died.

Experts believe Nuon Chea was the ideological driving force behind the regime and responsible for its most radical policies.
