The Pre-Trial Chamber of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) on Thursday ruled that it did not have enough votes to bring Case 004/02 against Ao An to a trial. The decision came after a three-day pre-trial hearing held in June.
“The pre-trial chamber declares that it has not assembled an affirmative vote of at least four judges for a decision based on common reasoning on the merits,” the ECCC said.
In 2016, the international co-investigating judge charged An with genocide and crimes against humanity.
