In Brief: Khieu Samphan appeal denied

Lawyers for former Khmer Rouge head of state Khieu Samphan have again

lost an appeal to release their client from detention at the Khmer

Rouge tribunal on the basis that their client’s case file is not in

their common language – French. A separate hearing against the

extension of the former leader’s detention will be held Friday, where

lawyers say they will continue their translation argument. “Khieu

Samphan’s detention is illegal. We request the chamber to release Khieu

Samphan immediately,” co-lawyer Sa Sovan said Sunday.
