In 1985 he officially succeeded Pol Pot as leader of the Khmer Rouge, and served in this position until 1998. In December 1998 Khieu and former Pol Pot's deputy Nuon Chea surrendered to the Royal Cambodian Government .
Pol Pot transformed Cambodia into a one-party state called Democratic Kampuchea. His predecessor, Khieu Samphan, became head of state as President of the State Presidium. Wessinger, Catherine (2000). Seeking to create an agrarian socialist society, his government forcibly relocated the urban population to the countryside to work on collective farms.

Anlong Veng remains far outside government control. General Bunchhay also said that on June 24th Khieu Samphan, a former leader of the Khmers Rouges, would annnounce over the guerrillas' radio his defection to the government. But the Khmer Rouge radio continues to put out its usual vituperative broadsides against Vietnamese puppets such as Hun Sen. Still, Pol Pot may yet be brought in.

Khieu Samphan, Pol Pot's prime minister during the years of genocide, took the salute of UN troops with their commander, the Australian general John Sanderson, at his side. Eric Falt, the UN spokesman in Cambodia, told me: "The peace process was aimed at allowing to gain respectability. Authoritarian and at times brutal, yet by Cambodian standards extraordinarily stable, the government led by a former Khmer Rouge dissident, Hun Sen, who fled to Vietnam in the 1970s, has since done deals with leading figures of the Pol Pot era, notably the breakaway faction of Ieng Sary, while denying others immunity from prosecution.
Pol Pot (19 May 1925 – 15 April 1998), born Saloth Sar, was the General Secretary of the Cambodian Communist Party (Khmer Rouge) and the Prime Minister of Democratic Kampuchea from 1976 to 1979.

In this "Khmer Rouge" just could understand. American cultural influence destroyed the traditional societies of South and Southeast Asia. A veteran of the revolutionary movement, So Phim, along with Pol Pot, Ieng Sari, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea, was part of the ruling secret five of the Central Committee of the Kampuchea Communist Party. He had a strong position in the party and maintained contacts with neighboring Vietnam, which ensured him actual autonomy from the central government of Kampuchea.

Image caption Khieu Samphan (left) and Nuon Chea are the last surviving top leaders of the Khmer Rouge regime. They were once considered the Khmer Rouge's most powerful leaders after Pol Pot. Now Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan have been jailed for life after being convicted by Cambodia's UN-backed tribunal of crimes against humanity. The verdict comes more than three decades after the Khmer Rouge's fall. Under the regime, up to two million Cambodians died from execution, overwork and starvation.
