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.

Defense lawyers for Khmer Rouge leaders Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan boycotted an opening hearing for the two men on Friday, leaving the courtroom and putting the second and final phase of the trial for the two men in limbo. Nuon Chea’s team has asked for a disqualification of four judges, while Khieu Samphan’s team has asked for an appeal on an initial judgment against him. Neither request has yet been heard, but tribunal officials say they will be. It remains unclear what will happen next with the hearing. (Kong Sothanarith, Phnom Penh)
