The victims support section of the UN-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal will hold a seminar next week to help survivors and lawyers prepare for the final phase of a trial against two former regime leaders.
 
The second phase of an atrocity crimes trial against Nuon Chea, the regime’s ideologue, and Khieu Samphan, its head of state, is expected at the end of the year.
 
The upcoming phase will cover crimes that include genocide and will focus on security centers, work cooperatives, purges, forced marriage and crimes against ethnic minorities such as the Muslim Cham and Vietnamese.
 
Officials at the Victims Support Section said in a statement Wednesday that they want to hear from lawyers and victims, as well as donors, as they discuss the upcoming trial phase.
 
Tribunal spokesman Neth Pheaktra said the court wants to hear from civil party parties, particularly about their needs for reparation.

Cambodia Senate Passed NGO Law Despite Protests And Boycotti

24 July 2015
Hundreds of people demonstrated outside Cambodia’s Senate on Friday morning as senators inside debated a controversial new law designed to regulate the non-profit sector. The Law on Associations and NGOs, or LANGO, has been widely criticized by non-profits and many of Cambodia’s development partners, not least because it gives the government carte blanche to close down any organization. VOA Khmer Hul Reaksmey reports from Phnom Penh.
