Appeal judgement in Case 002/01 scheduled for 23 November

The Supreme Court Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) has announced that it will pronounce its judgement on the appeals in Case 002/01 against Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan on Wednesday, 23 November at 9:00 am in the main courtroom of the ECCC.

Case 002/01 is the first of at least two trials against Nuon Chea, former Deputy Secretary of the Communist Party of Kampuchea, and Khieu Samphan, former Head of State of Democratic Kampuchea. The charges in Case 002/01 are focused on alleged crimes against humanity committed during the forced evacuation of Phnom Penh in April 1975 and subsequent forced transfer from other areas, as well as the alleged execution of former Khmer Republic soldiers in Tuol Po Chrey in Pursat Province. On 7 August 2014, the Trial Chamber found both accused guilty of crimes against humanity and sentenced them to life in prison. Both Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan filed appeals against the Trial Chamber’s judgement, advancing 223 and 148 grounds of appeal respectively. In addition, the Co-Prosecutors have filed an appeal limited to seeking declaratory relief from the Supreme Court Chamber regarding the applicability of the most extended form of joint criminal enterprise known as “JCE III” as a mode of liability before the ECCC.
