The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia has denied the prosecutor’s request to proceed with a politically sensitive trial request.

The investigating judges said the international prosecutor, Andrew Cayley,  failed to follow procedure when requesting that unnamed suspects be interviewed for their crimes as members of the Khmer Rouge regime. Cayley had filed the request without the backing of his domestic counterpart, Chea Leang, who believes the suspects are outside the ECCC’s jurisdiction.

Cayley can appeal the judges’ decision.

Meanwhile, the ECCC is about to get underway with Case File 002, which will see four top commanders of the Khmer Rouge regime on trial for crimes against humanity, genocide, and war crimes.
