In Brief: Translation needed at KRT

Defence lawyers for former Khmer Rouge head of state Khieu Samphan have reiterated their demand for thousands of pages of legal documents to be translated into French, adding that they would like the long-delayed pretrial detention hearing for their client to go forward on October 23. French attorney Jacques Verges has previously asserted that he cannot defend his client without a copy of the full case file in French. The UN-backed court is dealing with a backlog of tens of thousands of documents that need to be translated, according to tribunal papers.
