The Khmer Rouge used a form of execution to terrify the Cambodian people – slowly sawing off the heads of victims a little more each day. Sanguon Preap had been serving in the Khmer Rouge for three months when he witnessed such an atrocity. “I was very frightened when I saw the Khmer Rouge saw off the neck of a civilian with the sharp edge of sugar palm leaves. They spent three days cutting his head off. They sawed a little one morning, and then in the evening, and finally the following day in the morning and then in the evening, and finally the following day in the morning and night. They made the victim stand up while there were cutting in front of hundreds of people living in the Khmer Rouge area. Then they held him up when he could stand no longer.”
