Following an unexpected break in the previous week, due to the sudden hospitalization of Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan, proceedings resumed this week in accordance with the revised schedule determined by the Trial Chamber. President Nil Nonn explained that, due to the Chamber’s inability to hear oral testimony, the hearing of the documents originally scheduled for 18 February 2013, would take place during the week of 21 January 2013. The OCP and Civil Parties presented documents related to military structures, the first and second phases of forced evacuation, and Tuol Po Chrey execution site. The Defense had multiple opportunities to submit responses to the documents presented by the OCP and Civil Parties. Another issue raised this week concerned the ongoing matter of Ieng Sary’s health and fitness.
