Mr Meas Muth charged in Case 003

On 14 December 2015, the International Co-Investigating Judge charged Mr Meas Muth with the following alleged crimes: 


Crimes against Humanity, namely murder; extermination; enslavement; imprisonment; torture; persecution; other inhumane acts (inhumane treatment, enforced disappearances, forced labour, forced marriage, rape and attacks on human dignity due to conditions of detention); 

Grave Breaches of the Geneva Conventions of 1949, namely wilful killing; wilfully causing great suffering or serious injury to body or health, torture and unlawful confinement of civilians.

Violations of the 1956 Cambodian Penal Code, namely premeditated homicide.

These crimes were allegedly variously committed 

at various security centres, among them the S-21 Security Centre (Tuol Sleng), 

additionally against members of Divisions 164, 502, 117, and 310, 

at Wat Enta Nhien Security Centre,

at Stung Hav worksite, 

by the Navy of Democratic Kampuchea in and around the islands claimed by Democratic Kampuchea, 

at the Ream area co-operative including worksites at Kang Keng and Bet Trang, the Durian Plantation Execution Site, and the Toek Sap Security Centre, and 

in Kampong Som.

A number of charges from the Decision of 3 March 2015 charging him in absentia were rescinded. That decision has now become moot, as is the arrest warrant of 10 December 2014. The arrest warrant of 4 June 2015 was rescinded, since Mr Meas Muth appeared voluntarily at the hearing.
