Duch on Trial (The Appeal): Week 27

After a three-day hearing at the ECCC (28, 29, 30 March 2011), the seven Supreme Court judges retired to consider appeals against sentence and verdict by prosecution and defence lawyers. They also heard appeals by some civil parties on various legal matters.

In Episode 27, Presenters Neth Pheaktra and Tan Tepkanika summarize, analyse and discuss the arguments put forward by both sides.

This first part of the program was shown on CTN, Cambodia’s leading TV channel, on Monday 4 April; the second part on Tuesday 5 April; both parts gained a repeat broadcast on Sunday 10 April.

The final episode in the Duch on Trial TV series (Episode 28) will be made and broadcast when the Supreme Court Judges announce their decisions in due course.
