TRIAL CHAMBER GRANTS ONE MORE WEEK FOR THE FILING OF CLOSING BRIEFS AND SETS A NEW SCHEDULE FOR CLOSING ARGUMENTS IN CASE 002/02

The Trial Chamber has granted in part requests by the parties to extend the deadline for the submission of Closing Briefs in Case 002/02 against KHIEU Samphan and NUON Chea and modified the schedule for Closing Statements. Closing Briefs, previously due on 24 April, are now due on 2 May 2017. The extension was granted in view of the on-going correction and finalisation of numerous hearing transcripts by the Transcription Unit.

Closing Statements, previously set to begin on 5 June in Case 002/02 have been rescheduled to begin on 13 June 2017. This change was necessary to respect the rights of the parties to prepare and present their respective arguments while ensuring that proceedings in Case 002/02 are concluded in a timely manner. Upon completion of the review of the hearing transcripts, parties will be granted an opportunity to file Amended Closing Briefs to address changes arising after the submission of the original Closing Briefs.

Closing Statements will be held from 13-22 June 2017 as follows:

The Lead Co-Lawyers                                13 June 2017 (1 day)

Co-Prosecutors                                            14-15 June 2017 (2 days)

Defence Teams                                            16, 19-20 June 2017 (3 days)

Rebuttal                                           21 June (1 day)

Final Statements of the Accused                 22 June (4 hours)

 

The trial judgment in Case 002/02 will follow the Closing Statements in due course.
