ECCC delivers appeal verdict for Samphan by end-Sept

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), commonly known as the Khmer Rouge tribunal, will pronounce an appeal judgment in Case 002 concerning Khieu Samphan on the morning of September 22.

In an August 5 press release, it recalled that the ECCC Trial Chamber first announced its verdict against Samphan on November 16, 2018, sentencing him to life imprisonment for genocide, crimes against humanity and grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions of 1949. The sentences were combined in Case 002/01.

The ECCC noted that the Trial Chamber pronounced its verdict and sentence by rendering an oral summary of its findings and the disposition of the judgment. It subsequently notified the written judgment to the Parties on March 28, 2019 in a Khmer, French and English “Trial Judgment”.

Samphan and co-prosecutors lodged an appeal against the judgment. And the Supreme Court Chamber president announced the conclusion of the appeal hearing on August19, 2021.
