The Duch trial has entered closing arguments, which are expected to run through the week.

According to the court's schedule, civil parties are scheduled to present their arguments Monday, with the prosecution following on Tuesday. The defense team and Duch himself will speak on Wednesday and Thursday, after which civil parties and the prosecution will be allowed to make rebuttal statements. The defense team and Duch will then be given one hour to make final statements.
