Dispute over additional prosecutions could lead to public hearing

Given the amount of public interest in the Co-Prosecutors' disagreement over whether the ECCC should pursue additional suspects, international prosecutor Robert Petit issued a statement last week.

After outlining the history of the disagreement, Petit wrote that he and Cambodian prosecutor Chea Leang had been given additional questions by the Pre-Trial Chamber April 24. They must each respond by the end of May. If the Chamber decides an oral hearing is required, it will be held June 5. Should this happen, Petit wrote, he will request that at least part of the hearing be held in public.
