Khmer Rouge tribunal prosecutors are reviewing a recent
closing order by investigation judges in the case of Kaing Kek Iev, to ensure
the document and its indictments are agreeable.
Co-prosecutor Robert Petit said Tuesday his office was
reviewing the closing order, which seeks charges of war crimes and crimes
against humanity against the former prison chief better known as Duch.
Investigating judges forwarded the closing order to the
Trial Chamber of the courts Aug. 8, but the prosecuting office has a chance to
review it before the trial stage for Duch can begin.
Tribunal observers said the closing order could contain some
fine points the prosecution may want to revise.
Co-investigating judge You Bunleng told VOA Khmer Thursday
he hoped the document would suffice, moving the case to the trial stage.
