Statement by the Co-Investigating Judges Regarding Civil Parties in Case 004

So far, the Office of the Co-investigating Judges did not notify the public of the crime sites in Case 004, because, unlike in Case 002, there are serious doubts whether the suspects are “most responsible” according to the jurisdictional requirement of Article 2 ECCC Law. If the Court had no jurisdiction, it would be inappropriate to encourage civil party applications further to the 200 already received in this case, as this could raise expectations which might not be met later on. 

However, since there is an increasing amount of speculative and wrong information being published in the media and on a certain website, the following information is released without prejudice to legal issues to be addressed in the Closing Order: 

1. The Third Introductory Submission in Case 004 includes the following crime sites and criminal episodes:
