Peng Poan was called as a witness to testify on the character of the Accused.

Peng Poan knew the Accused as Hang Pin when he worked under this name as a teacher at Phkoam High School during the school years 1993 to 1995. The Accused was first recruited as a voluntary teacher in chemistry and physics for grades 7 and 8 before being officially recruited in late 1995. When the Accused was transferred to the district educational department after the robbery at his house, Peng Poan lost track of him.

As a character witness, Peng Poan described the Accused as a gentle and quiet person. According to him, the Accused did not show any signs of abnormality. He told the Chamber that the Accused was a remarkable teacher and loved by many students. They called him "Grandfather Teacher" in appreciation of his talent.

Peng Poan only learned that the Accused was the former Chairman of S-21 through a broadcast at the time of his arrest. He told the Trial Chamber that he was very shocked when he learned this news because he remembered the Accused as a normal teacher.
