A UN delegation led by its coordinator for the Khmer Rouge trials in Cambodia, Michelle Lee, is expected to arrive in Phnom Penh on December 6 for a technical mission to help set up the extraordinary chambers. Lee, who was appointed by the UN Secretary-General on August 25, is being sent to assist Sean Visoth, who has headed up the task force in charge of setting up the joint tribunal to try the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia since 1999.

Five months after the entry into force of the accord between the United Nations and the Cambodian government, there has been little sign of progress in setting up the extraordinary chambers to try former Khmer Rouge leaders. Michelle Lee, who was appointed by the secretary-general to coordinate legal assistance on 25 August, is still not in post. Kofi Annan is not set to assign international judges until the end of October. A growing number of observers are openly pessimistic about holding the trials 25 years after the fall of the Pol Pot regime.

Just as judges are about to be appointed to the Extraordinary Chambers to try former Khmer Rouge leaders of Cambodia, the Documentation Center of Cambodia (DC-Cam) is preparing to hand over to the prosecutors information it has collected over the past ten years. DC-Cam was first established in 1995 at Yale University in the United States to collect documentation on the Khmer Rouge so as to explain history and establish responsibility for crimes committed. It has been operating in Phnom Penh since 1997 under the leadership of Youk Chhang, a former survivor. Chhang and his center will be playing a crucial role in the preparation of future trials.
