Judicial investigation against Meas Muth concluded

The International Co-Investigating Judge today notified all parties in Case 003 that he considers the judicial investigation in Case 003 to be concluded. The parties have been granted 30 days to request further investigative action.

The Judge also issued a separate decision reducing the scope of the judicial investigation in relation to Meas Muth pursuant to Internal Rule 66 bis.

Today’s notification marks the conclusion of over eight years of judicial investigation into Meas Muth for crimes alleged to have been committed between 17 April 1975 and 6 January 1979. This investigation was initiated following receipt of the Second Introductory Submission filed by the International Co-Prosecutor on 7 September 2009. The scope of Case 003 was subsequently expanded by a Supplementary Submission filed by the International Co-Prosecutor on 31 October 2014. 

The judicial investigation against a previous joint suspect, Sou Met, was terminated on 2 June 2015 following his earlier demise. 

The National Co-Investigating Judge wishes to state for the record that the National Co-Investigating Judge and former International Co-Investigating Judge Siegfried Blunk issued a notice of conclusion of the investigation in Case 003 on 29 April 2011. The National Co-Investigating Judge issued a Forwarding Order in Case 003 on 7 February 2013.
