Penal code ruled out

The Khmer Rouge Tribunal’s Trial Chamber has decided that the accused in Case 002 cannot be tried for crimes under Cambodia’s 1956 Penal Code - including acts of murder, torture and religious persecution. In a decision made public last Friday, the Trial Chamber decided that the four accused former leaders of the Khmer Rouge regime could not be tried for national crimes. The four were indicted for international crimes, such as crimes against humanity and genocide, and national crimes under the Penal Code.
