Khmer Rouge Tribunal Monitoring Report - Case 002/01 Report Issue 4 (Khmer)

Case 002/01 came to a close this week with the Supreme Court Chamber (SCC)’s announcement of their verdict on the appeals against the Trial Chamber’s August 2014 verdict. Although the SCC overturned some of the Trial Chamber’s decisions, including acquitting the two Accused of responsibility for crimes which took place at Tuol Po Chrey in late April 1975, the SCC ultimately upheld the life sentences for each of the Accused, saying this best reflects the gravity of the crimes with which they have been charged.
