Hearing on Evidence on Week 18
Week Ending May 23 2012
The importance of the right of the accused to be present in his trial was highlighted this week in the face of Ieng Sary’s deteriorating health. Ieng Sary was rushed to the hospital on Thursday, 17 May 2012, after experiencing severe coughing, difficulty in breathing, and dizziness. When trial resumed on Monday, 21 May 2012, the Accused was still in the hospital and the medical report submitted by his doctor was read in court. Ieng Sary’s international counsel, Mr. Michael Karnavas, asked for a suspension of the proceedings without opposition from any of the other Parties. The Trial Chamber granted the request and rescheduled the hearing to Wednesday, 23 May 2012, a day after Ieng Sary’s release from the hospital.
