Robert Petit, International Prosecutor, Khmer Rouge Tribunal / Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, discusses the unique challenges presented by the "Killing Fields Trials" before the United Nations-established Khmer Rouge Tribunal in Cambodia. In light of the scale of the atrocities, the passage of 30 years since they were committed, the hybrid nature of the Tribunal, and the fact that the defense is led by the infamous Jacques Verg?s, known for his strategy of trial by disruption -- these are among the most challenging war crimes cases ever to be tried.
