This week, in four days of proceedings, the Chamber heard the testimony of Expert Witness Philip Short. The author of “Pol Pot: History of a Nightmare” testified primarily on the sources and content of his book. Testifying on a variety of issues within the Closing Order, Philip Short shed light on matters related to the CPK’s ideology, policies, and its implementation, as well as the roles and characters of the Accused. The proceedings moved efficiently this week, with only a relatively small number of legal procedural issues occurring, primarily related to the relevance of the issues brought up by the Defence during their questioning.
