As soon as possible. Several important Khmer Rouge leaders have already died, showing the urgency of establishing these trials.

There are a number of steps to be taken before the trial can begin:
  1. The National Assembly of Cambodia will ratify the agreementsigned with the UN to make that agreement binding law inCambodia.
  2. The UN will request financial contributions from foreigncountries.
  3. The Office of Administration will be set up; Cambodian and international personnel will be appointed.
  4. Both Cambodian and international judges, co-prosecutorsand co-investigating judges will be appointed.
  5. When sufficient funds are received the ExtraordinaryChambers will be formally established and the prosecutionand investigation process can begin.
  6. The trial process will begin.
After the trials there may be appeals to the Supreme Court Chamber. These appeals are final. When all trials and appeals are completed, the Extraordinary Chambers will be dissolved.
