Potential Duch trial drawing near

The Office of Co-Prosecutors is planning to file its final submissions related to Comrade Duch's case in the next few days, according to the July issue of the Court Report. This is the last procedural hurdle before the Office of Co-Investigating Judges (CIJ) can issue a Closing Order to send the case to trial.

"Whilst awaiting the Co-Prosecutors' submissions, the CIJ is prioritizing its work to ensure that the Closing Order is ready as soon as possible," according to the court's monthly newsletter. "The case is now on schedule for transfer to the Trial Chamber at the latest by early August."

Eight civil parties are expected to participate in the case and more than 20 additional applications are under consideration.
