Court wants guidance from Khieu Samphan defense

Lawyers for Khieu Samphan have until the end of this week to inform the court if they want to proceed with their client's appeal against provisional detention. Khieu's April hearing was adjourned after his international co-lawyer, Jacques Verges, said he could not properly defend his client until thousands of pages of documents had been translated into French.

At that time, the pre-trial hearing was delayed until an unspecified date.

Four months later, Khieu's defense has failed to advise "the Pre-Trial Chamber concerning their readiness to proceed or preference for the Pre-Trial Chamber to decide without further hearing, or any other advice being given related to their appeal."
