Ieng Sary appeal decision Friday

Judges at the ECCC will announce Friday whether they have decided to grant Ieng Sary's appeal against provisional detention. Sary's lawyers have argued that their client is too frail to remain in detention, but the court has so far denied similar appeals from other defendants.

I won't be able to attend the announcement on Friday because I will be at a public forum in Pailin organized by the Center for Social Development. However, I will post the judges' decision as soon as I can.

UPDATE (10/15/2008): CSD's forum in Pailin has been postponed because of fighting at the Thai-Cambodian border over Preah Vihear.
