The Civil Peace Service of GIZ in Cambodia supports the “Forum on the Developments of ECCC’s Proceedings and Reparations in Case 002/02”
On Thursday, 9 February 2017, the Victims Support Section of the ECCC in cooperation with the Civil Party Lead Co-Lawyers organised a forum on the developments of the ECCC’s proceedings and reparations in Case 002/02.
More than 150 survivors of the Khmer Rouge regime participated in the event, and received detailed information about the current Case 002/02 and the Appeal Judgment in Case 002/01 against Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan. As a symbolic acknowledgement of their meaningful contribution to the proceedings, the published Appeal Judgment was handed over to the Civil Parties in a small ceremony.
Furthermore, the participants exchanged information about the thirty-five reparation projects currently implemented or planned under the reparations mandate of the ECCC which aim at acknowledging the sufferings of Civil Parties and to help to restore their dignity and wellbeing.
The Civil Peace Service supports the activities of the Victims Support Section of the ECCC to ensure that victims of the Khmer Rouge regime can receive justice and redress through meaningful participation as Civil Parties in the judicial proceedings before the ECCC.
