If an Accused is convicted by the ECCC, victims may ask the court to make an order of reparations. Under Cambodian law, civil parties may claim compensation in criminal cases for damages they suffered from the crimes being tried. The ECCC can award collective and moral reparations that acknowledge the harm suffered by the civil parties and provides benefits to them but it cannot award individual financial compensation.
