Communiqué de presse de Me Elisabeth Simonneau-Fort, Co-avocate principale internationale

Je souhaite vous informer qu’à la fin du mois de mai 2014 je démissionnerai des fonctions que j’exerçais au sein des CETC. Á ce stade je souhaiterais également souligner que ce fut un honneur pour moi que de contribuer à l’introduction en droit international du mécanisme de participation et de représentation des parties civiles par des co-avocats principaux. Je ne prendrai pas en charge le deuxième procès dans le dossier n° 002 pour des raisons personnelles et professionnelles.

Statement by Elisabeth Simonneau-Fort, International Civil Party Lead Co-Lawyer

I would like to inform you that, at the end of May 2014, I will resign from my post at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia  (ECCC). At this stage, I would also like to emphasize that it has been an honour to introduce the Lead Co-Lawyers scheme of Civil Party participation and representation in international justice. I will not take in charge Case 002/02 for personal and professional reasons. During the last months, I have continued to exercise my role as the international Lead Co-Lawyer on behalf of Civil Parties from France and pro bono.

Victims: We Receive Some Justice by Becoming Civil Parties

“The Pre-Trial Chamber’s decision to grant the appeal on the admissibility of my application as a Civil Party in Case 002 against the four accused persons, is a part of justice for me and my late relatives who lost their life under the Khmer Rouge. The upcoming trials will bring me more justice”, said a Civil Party on the 28 July 2011 while attending a regional forum organized for recently admitted Civil Parties in Case 002 organized by Victim Support Section of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC).
