In 2007, she was appointed as an international judge to the Cambodian War Trials Tribunal that was established to try leaders of the Khmer Rouge accused of crimes against humanity, war crimes and genocide.

The Khmer Rouge Government installed a genocidal regime and carried out atrocities that led to the deaths of a quarter of the Cambodian population between 1975 and 1979.
