If convicted, the accused face a minimum sentence of five years to a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. The death penalty is unconstitutional in Cambodia. In addition, the court may order the confiscation of property or money that a defendant has acquired unlawfully or by criminal conduct. Any confiscated property will be turned over to the State. Kaing Guek Eav alias Duch, Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan have been sentenced to life imprisonment.
