The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia
In 1997, Cambodia established a Khmer Rouge Trial Task Force to create a legal and judicial structure to try the remaining leaders for war crimes and other crimes against humanity. Under the agreement between Cambodia and the UN, the Tribunal was composed of both local and international judges. On July 19, 2007, the prosecutors submitted a list of five charged persons to the Tribunal's co-investigating judges and requested that they be indicted and brought to trial. On February 4, 2008, the Tribunal held its first hearing. The series of volumes in this collection provide for the complete documentation on the work of the court. Basic documents, transcripts, and other relevant documentation of the court are reproduced.
