KRT Trial Monitor C002 – Issue 40 (18-19 October 2012)

Returning from the break for the Pchum Ben Festival, the Trial Chamber held scheduled document hearings on Thursday and Friday. The Prosecution continued their presentation of documents from the previous week, and was followed by the Civil Parties. Although only the Nuon Chea Defense elected to present documents, all Defense Teams participated in the proceedings through vigorous objections and submissions, mostly relating to the parameters and purpose of the document hearing.

With the document hearing ending sooner than anticipated, the Chamber called Civil Party Yim Sovann to the stand on Friday afternoon. She testified on her experience of the years leading to and during the DK, particularly focusing on her family’s evacuation from Phnom Penh in 1975 and from Kandal Province in 1976.
