The Court Report April 2009
The April 2009 issue of the Court Report announces the opening of substantive hearings in Case 001, which commenced on 30 March 2009. Most of the attendants at the first few days of hearings were Cambodian, and around 180 media representatives covered the trial as well. Most of the hearings were broadcast live on Cambodian television. On 28 and 29 March 2009 the Victims Unit organized a meeting for civil parties in Case 001 to provide them with relevant information before the start of substantive hearings. ECCC officials also participated in a public forum on justice and national reconciliation in Stung Treng on 10 April.
