    2005 NIC DUNLOP — Nic Dunlop’s book about Comrade Duch, The Lost Executioner, has been published in London by Bloomsbury Publishing and Walker books in the US. The book examines the life of a man responsible for the deaths of more than 20,000 people in Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. Dunlop discovered Duch living in the west of the country under an assumed name in 1999. He had been working for international aid organizations as a born-again Christian. As a result of Dunlop’s exposure of Duch he was arrested and jailed. Ten years later, he was the first of five former Khmer Rouge to go on trial at the UN tribunal in Cambodia charged with crimes against humanity, war crimes, murder and torture.
