Extension of time for Duch appeal granted

THE Khmer Rouge tribunal has granted lawyers for former Tuol Sleng prison chief Kaing Guek Eav, alias Duch, an additional 30 days to file an appeal against their client’s July conviction. The team requested additional time last month, citing the “size and complexity” of the case and the recent appointment of defence lawyer Kang Ritheary, who joined the team in August. The defence now has until November 22 to file its full appeal; prosecutors have also appealed against the judgment, claiming Duch’s 30-year jail sentence is “manifestly inadequate”.
