Product Description

In 1997, Cambodia established a Khmer Rouge Trial Task Force to create a legal and judicial structure to try the remaining leaders for war crimes and other crimes against humanity. Under the agreement between Cambodia and the UN, the tribunal is to be composed of both local and international judges. Both the Pre-Trial Chamber and the Trial Chamber are composed of three Cambodian and two international judges, while a Supreme Court Chamber is made up of four Cambodian judges and three international judges. All international judges have been appointed by the Supreme Council of the Magistracy of Cambodia from a list of nominees submitted by the UN Secretary-General.

On July 19, 2007, the prosecutors submitted a list of five charged persons to the Tribunal’s Co-Investigating Judges, and requested that they be indicted and brought to trial.

On 4 February, 2008, the tribunal held its first hearing. In this collection we provide for the complete documentation on the work of the Court. Basic documents, transcripts and other relevant documentation of the Court are being reproduced.
