Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Four Cambodian lawyers and top officials for the Khmer Rouge tribunal will attend a two-day workshop in Bangkok, Thailand Saturday to study the cases in East Timor in gaining experiences for the trial of the former Khmer Rouge leaders, alleges a spokesman for the Extraordinary Chambers.
Khmer Rouge tribunal spokesman Reach Sambath says that this unique workshop is sponsored by a group of U.S.-based legal experts from the center for war crimes at the University of California at Berkely, and the East West Center of the University of Hawaii at Honolulu.
He says that those participants have experiences in international war crimes.
He says that administration director Sean Visoth, and deputy director Michele Lee, legal affairs director Tony Kranh and Helen Jarvis will also attend.
