How will the judges reach decisions?
The judges will try to reach unanimous agreement on any decision made. If they cannot all agree, then a decision requires what is called a 'super-majority'. In the Trial Chamber and in the Pre-Trial Chamber, a decision requires the vote of at least four of the five judges. In the Supreme Court Chamber, a decision requires the vote of at least five of the seven judges. Given the composition of the chambers, every decision must have the support of both Cambodian and foreign judges.
