Khieu Samphan's National Lawyer, Say Bory, Quits
Dr Say Bory has resigned from his position as Cambodian Co-Lawyer for Khieu Samphan due to his concern that he would not be able to represent Mr Khieu through to the conclusion of the trial for reasons of ill health. It was considered safer to instruct a new Cambodian lawyer sooner rather than later, in order to give the new lawyer as much time as possible to prepare the case.
The Defence Support Section (DSS) and Dr Say have met with Khieu Samphan to discuss his legal representation and it is expected that a new Cambodian Co-Lawyer will be selected shortly.
Dr Say will continue to represent Mr Khieu whilst he transfers the case to the new Cambodian Co-Lawyer.
