Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge Court To Give Final Verdict

Cambodia’s UN-backed court for the Khmer Rouge will give its final verdict on Thursday, ending 16 years of work with a ruling on the last surviving regime leader’s appeal against his conviction for genocide.

The tribunal, formally known as the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), will begin giving its judgment on 91-year-old former head of state Khieu Samphan at 9:30 am (0230 GMT).

It will be the last verdict issued by the tribunal, which has cost more than $330 million and prosecuted only five Khmer Rouge leaders, two of whom died during proceedings.
