The death of Ieng Sary, one of the three accused in Case 002 at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, cast into sharp relief the many delays and difficulties that threaten to deny justice to the victims of the Khmer Rouge. The court continues to struggle with Case 002, while the specter of political interference haunts Cases 003 and 004, and a funding crisis hangs over the entire institution. This report examines recent events at the court and offers recommendations for action by the UN, the Royal Government of Cambodia, and the court’s donors.

This is the latest in a series of reports on the ECCC by the Open Society Justice Initiative, which has monitored proceedings at the tribunal since before the tribunal was launched.
