Request for hearing on judges dismissed

The Khmer Rouge tribunal’s Pre-Trial Chamber has dismissed as “inadmissible and unfounded” a request by Ieng Sary’s lawyers to hold a public hearing related to a September speech by Prime Minister Hun Sen in which he said that “some foreign judges and prosecutors have received orders from their governments to create problems here”. In a filing dated October 20, lawyers Ang Udom and Michael Karnavas urged the chamber to “clarify and/or verify the alleged conduct” of Pre-Trial Chamber Judges Katinka Lahuis and Rowan Downing.
