KRT judges mulling civil party extension

The investigating judges at the Khmer Rouge tribunal said yesterday that a decision “will be rendered shortly” on international co-prosecutor Andrew Cayley’s request that they extend by six weeks the deadline for prospective civil parties to apply in the court’s third case. This deadline expired earlier this month, by which point 318 people had applied, nearly all of them in the last few days applications were being accepted. Because of the dearth of public information on the case during the 20 months that the investigation was open, Cayley argued that victims needed more time to consult with their lawyers and prepare applications.
