Case 002/02 hearing will resume on 21 January 2015

The Trial Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) has been informed by the Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital that Khieu Samphan will not be discharged from the hospital before 15 January 2015. Consequently, the trial hearing scheduled for that day has been cancelled.
The Trial Chamber has previously ordered medical examinations by court appointed experts on 19 and 20 January to assess both Accused Persons’ fitness to stand trial. The next trial hearing in Case 002/02 will therefore commence at 09:00 on Wednesday 21 January 2015.
