Planning continues for Case 002/02 reparation requests

Having successfully conducted the Stakeholders Consultation on Case 002/02 Reparation last month, the Victims Support Section (VSS) and the Civil Party Lead Co-Lawyers Section (CPLCLS) will host a Civil Parties Consultation on Case 002/02 Reparations, which will take place on 21 July 2014 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Cambodia-Korea Cooperation Centre (CKCC), Royal University of Phnom Penh, Russian Federation Boulevard, Khan Toul Kork, Phnom Penh.

This event will bring Civil Party Lawyers and approximately 100 Civil Parties from throughout Cambodia to identify, discuss and develop reparation requests for the next case. For participants from the media, please note that the first and last sessions of the day are opened to the media, but that the remainder of the event will be held in closed session.

A wide variety of criminal charges will be included in this next trial, including genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes. Accordingly, the VSS and the CPLCLS are seeking to develop a diverse range of reparation requests that will address the harm suffered as a consequence of the crimes charged and bring redress to civil parties.

The VSS and the CPLCLS have been consulting with Civil Parties and Civil Party Lawyers to identify and discuss potential reparation requests for the benefit of victims of the Khmer Rouge regime.

Civil Parties can seek moral and collective reparations, but any reparation project is contingent on the conviction of the accused, who are entitled to the presumption of innocence until proven guilty through a final judgment.

The VSS is an official organ of the ECCC and is mandated to facilitate and coordinate victim participation in the ECCC proceedings. Furthermore, the VSS, in cooperation with the CPLCLS, is mandated to identify, design, and implement reparation projects; and to seek external funding and support.
