PTC Orders a Detention Appeal Hearing for Ieng Sary

The PTC has accepted the defense's views on the necessity of a hearing to determine the appeal of the extension of Ieng Sary's detention and interpreted the relevant rule of the ECCC Internal Rules (IRs) to contain a presumption in favor of oral hearings when the question pertaining to a charged person's liberty is raised. The defense plans on arguing that the pre-trial detention of Ieng Sary cannot be continued at this stage due to his rapidly deteriorating health.
