Ieng Sary team submits new witness waiver


Less than a month after ailing Khmer Rouge Foreign Minister Ieng Sary waived his right to be present for the questioning of 18 witnesses, his lawyers have submitted a waiver to allow his absence during the testimony of another 14.

Lawyers for Sary have struggled to create workarounds to allow the trial of the regime’s top three living leaders to proceed while serious health issues have kept their client away from the court.

The 87-year-old has been hospitalised since September 7, fighting a slew of chronic health problems including a grave heart condition.

According to a memo released by the Trial Chamber last week, doctors are scheduled to examine Sary next week and report their findings to the court on Wednesday.
