AbstractThe author outlines the lengthy negotiation process to create the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia and the continued negotiations over the Internal Rules of the ECCC. The novel aspects of the procedure at the court are examined, looking at the investigation, the role of the civil party and the need for secrecy. There follows a survey of the ways in which defence lawyers have been supported in war crimes trials since Nuremberg, highlighting some of the recurring problems that have arisen and the system that is being used in Cambodia. Finally, the allegations against the five suspects before the ECCC are outlined and the legal issues that are likely to arise at the Court.
