Ms. Ouk Neary
Ouk Neary was a Civil Party in Case 001, having suffered from the loss of her father Ouk Ket.
She is the daughter of Civil Party Martine Lefeuvre, who also testified in Case 001. In 1977, while serving as third secretary to the Cambodian Embassy in Senegal, Ouk Ket received a request to return to Phnom Penh from the Foreign Ministry of Cambodia. He decided to heed this request and arrived in Phnom Penh on 11 June 1977. On 15 June 1977, he was detained at S-21 until he was executed on 9 December 1977. Ouk Neary barely knew her father, as she was only two years old when he left for Cambodia. However, she told the Trial Chamber about the suffering she endured not only because of his absence, but also due to the fact that he had been tortured and executed under terrible circumstances at S-21.
She described her first visit to the Tuol Sleng genocide museum in 1991 when she was 16 years old as "the most tremendous shock of [her] life".
