The Nature of Reparations Available Is Once Again Left Out of A Victims Unit Statement

In the foregoing statement of the Victims Unit Ms Keat Bophal left out one important aspect of participation in the civil proceedings before the ECCC which is the fact that under the ECCC's Internal Rules civil parties are precluded from claiming and receiving individual monetary reparations contrary to what is the case in the ordinary Cambodian judicial process. The fact that this is part and parcel of the "extraordinariness" of the ECCC process must be explained to those who are considering becoming civil parties to the ECCC proceedings to help such persons make informed decisions about their participation and calibrate their expectations accordingly.
