Trial in Case 002 Begins

Perhaps, ECCC's most important trial begins today on June 27, 2011. Four defedants will stand accused of crimes against humanity (including genocide), war crimes, and crimes under the domestic Cambodian law of the period. The complexity of this case is likely to result in the trial proceedings (not including the inexorable appeal to the Supreme Court Chamber) lasting in excess of a year (including the period it will take the Trial Chamber to write a judgment). While not an exercise in historical inquiry, Case 002 is expected to shed light on a number of ambiguities of the Khmer Rouge history.
