Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia

Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of CambodiaThe Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) was established to try senior members of the Khmer Rouge for crimes against humanity, including genocide, which took place between 1975 and 1979. The ‘hybrid’ Court was established by the Cambodian government and the United Nations and consists of Cambodian and international judges. Located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, the Chambers are a part of the Cambodian court system, and apply both international law and the Cambodian penal law in force during the relevant period.

The ECCC held its first open hearing on 20 November 2007 in the case against Kaing Guek Eav (“Duch”), former director of the notorious S-21 Security Prison. At present there are five former members of the Khmer Rouge awaiting trial before the Chambers.
