In Brief: Nuon chea to remain behind bars


former Khmer Rouge leader Nuon Chea is to remain in prison until at

least September after judges on Monday dismissed a request by his

lawyers for his release. In a press statement Tuesday, judges claimed

that provisional detention was "still a necessary measure to prevent

the [detainee] from exerting pressure on witnesses or destroying

evidence" and to preserve public order. Nuon Chea has been in detention

at the ECCC since his arrest in 2007.
