This week’s proceedings saw the conclusion of the examination of Mr. Youk Chhang, Director of the Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam), and Mr. Nuon Chea. Due to the non-appearance of an expert witness, Ms. Elizabeth Becker, the Chamber moved on to discuss the matter of documents put before the Chamber and the Parties. Throughout the week, Accused Ieng Sary and Khieu Samphan exercised their right to remain silent. Accused Nuon Chea, on the other hand, commented on some documents and requested for the original or, at the very least, a copy of the documents to enable him to identify and study the documents.
