On January 12, 2012 in the afternoon, 122 students from the University of Cambodia visited the Trial of Case 002 at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC). The visit led by Dr. Y Ratana, Dean for Undergraduate Studies Division and Director of Academic Foundation Department.


The hearings on January 12 aimed to seek additional information about the history of Communist Party of Kampuchea from Khieu Samphan, former Head of State of Democratic Cambodia. However, Khieu Samphan and his attorney decided to give up the right to defense with the judges’ questions. Therefore, Mr. Nil Nonn, President of the Judges, adjourned proceedings early and announced that the next hearing would be on Monday, January 16, 2012 to review the governing structure of Democratic Cambodia.


Khieu Samphan has been indicted and sent to trial for Crimes against Humanity, Grave Breaches of the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and Genocide, offences which are defined and punishable under Articles 4,5, 6, 29 (New) and 39 (New) of the Law on the Establishment of the Extraordinary Chambers as amended on October 27, 2004.
