Statement by the international Co-Prosecutor regarding ECCC caseload

Media reports indicate that questions have arisen at recent court outreach events concerning whether there will be more cases at the ECCC after Cases 003 and 004. The International Co-Prosecutor, Nicholas Koumjian, reiterates that the consistent policy of his office remains as first announced by his predecessor on 8 September 2009: no further cases will be submitted to the Co-Investigating Judges. The focus of the International Co-Prosecutor and his staff remains squarely on completing the cases currently on appeal, at trial and under investigation fairly and expeditiously, so that justice can be done and seen to be done and a fuller measure of accountability achieved for the crimes committed during the period of Democratic Kampuchea.
