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.
