Will victims be entitled to compensation?

If an accused person is convicted by the ECCC, victims may ask the court to make an order of reparations. Under Cambodian law, civil parties may claim compensation in criminal cases for damages they suffered from the crimes being tried. The judges have decided that individual financial compensation will not be possible in the ECCC. However, the judges may award collective and moral reparations such as an order to publish the judgment in appropriate media outlets at the convicted person’s expense or an order to fund any non-profit activity or service that is intended for the benefit of victims.
