Prosecutors divided in ECCC Case 004/02

The international and national co-prosecutors at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) held their positions in Case 004/02 against Ao An, with the former insisting that the case be sent to trial and the latter saying that doing so would be illegal.

The prosecutors issued two separate statements on Tuesday after the Pre-Trial Chamber declared last Thursday that the co-investigating judges’ issuance of two conflicting closing orders was illegal and violated the ECCC’s legal framework.

The Pre-Trial Chamber also said it could not come to an affirmative vote, with at least four judges needing to reach a decision based on common reasoning on the merits.
