KR suspects gain access to case files

KHMER ROUGE

Co-investigating Judges at the Khmer Rouge tribunal have allowed detainees at the court access to copies of their case file, according to an order released Monday. Previously, suspects held at the court's detention facility were only allowed to be "read out" part of the case file by their lawyers.  However, in response to requests by Ieng Thirith and Nuon Chea's defence teams, the judges say they have recognised the need for "direct, satisfactory" access to the evidence by the accused in accordance with international law, and said they will now allow a small, "lockable cabinet" to be placed in each detention cell at the court for case files to be kept in.
