Khmer Rouge tribunal sets complaint deadline

The Khmer Rouge tribunal has set a deadline of February 8 for the filing of complaints in its second case, the court said in a press release on Wednesday. Though complaints filed after February 8 will not necessarily be rejected, those filed before that date have “the greatest possibility of being accepted as evidence in Case File 002”, the court said. “Complaints or information may be submitted through the Victims Unit to the Co-Prosecutors by any person, organisation or other source who witnessed or was a victim of crimes within the jurisdiction of the ECCC, or who has information regarding such alleged crimes,” the statement said. The court has set a Friday deadline for civil party applications in Case 002. It had received 3,533 such applications as of the end of December.
