On 25 March, in the first hearing after Ieng Sary passed away on 14 March 2013 and the subsequent termination of the proceedings against him, the Trial Chamber heard the joint testimony of two court-appointed medical experts regarding the medical assessment of Nuon Chea. Once the testimony concluded, the Parties gave final remarks on the medical experts’ findings. The Chamber also provided the Parties with an opportunity to present comments about the severance of Case 002. The Parties’ positions on this matter were similar to their presentations in the week of 18 February 2013. The Chamber adjourned until Friday, 29 March, when the President announced two oral decisions—one finding Nuon Chea fit to stand trial, and the other describing the new severance order.
