Co-Investigating Judges issue order regarding Joint Criminal Enterprise

An Order from the Co-Investigating Judges, dated 8 December 2009, finds that the form of liability known as Joint Criminal Enterprise (JCE) applies for international crimes prosecuted before the ECCC.  These international crimes include crimes against humanity, war crimes (grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva conventions), genocide,  crimes against internationally protected persons and destruction of cultural property during armed conflict.

The Order was issued following a request from Ieng Sary`s defence team asking the Co-Investigating Judges to declare JCE not to be applicable before the ECCC. 3 other defence team later supported the request from Ieng Sary`s defence team.
