Defence questions Khmer Rouge tribunal on alleged obstruction

The lawyers for Nuon Chea filed an appeal to the ECCC’s Supreme Court Chamber on Christmas Eve, asking it to look into allegations by former reserve international Co-Investigating Judge Laurent Kasper-Ansermet that Cambodian court officials blocked his efforts to investigate cases 003 and 004.

The lawyers argued in their original April submission that these claims and Kasper-Ansermet’s very public resignation in March proved their client would not receive a fair trial in Case 002.

Three Nuon Chea lawyers quit this month in frustration after more than a year of feuding with the court.

In that period, they filed several submissions that sought to prod the court into ruling on interference.

They were mostly unsuccessful.
