§ Mr. Bowis
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what information he has as to the number of Cambodians still suffering from injuries inflicted under the Khmer Rouge regime; and what steps he has taken and will take to bring Pol Pot and others before the world court under article 9 of the genocide convention.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
There is no accurate information available on the number of Cambodians still suffering from injuries inflicted during the Pol Pot regime. Article IX of the genocide convention concerns disputes between states, not the prosecution of individuals. Only states may be parties in cases before the International Court of Justice, which has no criminal jurisdiction.
