Accused Person Ieng Sary Dies

The following statement was issued by the ECCC Office of Administration regarding the the passing of Ieng Sary:

It is with regret the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) announces the death of the accused person Ieng Sary. Mr. Ieng died at the Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital this morning after having been hospitalized since 4 March 2013.  In accordance with the ECCC Internal Rule 32 bis, the Co-Prosecutors will determine the cause of death after relevant enquiries. The Co-Prosecutors will issue a written report on their findings in due course.

Ieng Sary, born on 24 October 1925, was Deputy Prime Minister for Foreign Affairs and a permanent member of the Communist Party of Kampuchea's Standing Committee during the Democratic Kampuchea regime. He was arrested on 12 November 2007 and was on trial before the ECCC on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva Conventions.

Mr. Ieng has been hospitalized several times since being detained by the ECCC, and an assessment of his fitness to stand trial by local and international medical experts was scheduled for later this month.
