International Co-Investigating Judge calls for submission of amicus curiae briefs

The international Co-Investigating Judge of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) is inviting scholars, academic organizations and any other organization operating in the field of international criminal law to submit written amicus curiae briefs on the issue on whether, under customary international law applicable between 1975 and 1979, an attack by a state or organization against members of its own armed forces may amount to an attack directed against a civilian population for the purpose of Article 5 of the ECCC Law (crimes against humanity).

The amicus curiae briefs should be prepared in conformity with formats described in Practice Direction on Filing of Documents before the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (http://www.eccc.gov.kh/en/document/legal/practice-direction-filing-docum...) . The briefs  should not be exceeding 3,000 words (including footnotes) and shall be emailed by 19 May 2016  to the Greffier of the Office of the Co-Investigating Judges at the following address: Chhay.Chanlyda@eccc.gov.kh
