Ieng Sary expected in court despite condition

Case 002 co-accused Ieng Sary suffers from “established ischaemic heart disease”, a medical report published by the Khmer Rouge tribunal yesterday says.

Ieng Sary, the former Khmer Rouge minister of foreign affairs, has suffered from a heart condition for a number of years; however, the progression of this disease has not been made public.

Requests by his defence counsel for house arrest or fitness to stand trial examinations have been rejected by the tribunal judges.

Ieng Sary is to be released from hospital this morning.

The medical report, dated May 20, recommends he have two days of rest after his discharge; however, judges indicated on Monday he will be present at court this morning when doctors address them about his condition.
