Information Bulletin of the Co-Investigating Judges of the ECCC

Posted by khmernews on November 13, 2007

On 12 November 2007 Ieng Sary and Ieng Thirith were charged, the former for crimes against humanity and war crimes and the latter for crimes against humanity.
Their lawyers asked for time to prepare their defence and, consequently, requested the adjournment of the adversarial hearing on the question of pre-trial detention.

The Co-Investigating Judges considered this request reasonable and have decided that the adversarial hearing will take place on 14 November 2007, the two charged persons being, in the meantime, placed in police custody in the detention centre of the ECCC. (

Both charged persons will, today, have some medical examinations at Calmette Hospital.

Further details will be communicated shortly.
