The Trial Chamber heard Mr. Ieng Phan and Mr. Prom Sou on their experiences during the DK. Ieng Phan was a soldier, while Prom Sou worked at the commerce office of Sector 103. Additionally, two Character Witnesses for Khieu Samphan, Mr. Philippe Jullian-Gaufres and Mr. Chau Soc Kon, testified via video-link from France. The Chamber also recalled Civil Party Chau Ny, who first testified before the Chamber on 23 November 2012. Remarkably, Khieu Samphan addressed the Chamber and acknowledged the suffering of the Civil Party.
Legal and procedural issues this week included the proper use of documents for questioning witnesses, recalling a previous Civil Party in order to allow further questioning by a defense team, and the exercise of the right of the Accused to remain silent.
