Chamber rejects request

The Khmer Rouge tribunal’s trial chamber has rejected a request from “Brother Number Two” Nuon Chea’s defence team to adjourn the start of Case 002, which is set to begin on November 21. In a statement issued over the weekend, the defence team said they had requested an adjournment until several key matters were determined. These include the recent criminal complaint filed by the team against Prime Minister Hun Sen and others. The defence team said they filed their request for adjournment at 4 pm last Wednesday, and by 2 pm Friday had already received a rejection from the trial chamber.
