[Report] Comments on the Draft Internal Rules of the ECCC

On November 3, 2006, the Rules Committee has released the Draft Internal Rules. The meeting of international and Cambodian judges will convene in late November in Phnom Penh to finalize the draft. As a transitional justice mechanism of Cambodia, the Extraordinary Chamber for the Courts in Cambodia faces both historical opportunity and challenge of achieving justice and national reconciliation, by overcoming impunity of gross human rights violations. In this regard, Human Rights Now reiterates the importance of victims' roles and their rights in the entire process of the ECCC.

While Human Rights Now has already released our opinion paper "Justice for Victims - Fundamental Issues for the Extraordinary Chambers in the Court of Cambodia" on September 13th, 2006 (revised on October 13th, 2006), it again submits comments on the Draft Internal Rules to address the issues of victims' participation and reparation in the ECCC proceedings.
