Friday, October 18, 2013

Executive Summary:

On 16 October 2013, nine days of oral presentations of closing statements and rebuttals of the opposing counsels presentations were initiated, pursuant to Internal Rule 94.1.3 This week marked the conclusion of the closing statements from the Civil Parties and the first two days of the Co-Prosecutors’ statements. The Civil Party lawyers provided an overview of the case, which arguably went beyond the scope of Case 002/01 at times, and presented the projects proposed for collective and moral reparations in the event of guilty verdict against the accused pursuant to Internal Rule 23.1. The OCP started their closing statements on 17 October 2013 and presented arguments on CPK’s policies, particularly those related to Forced Evacuations I and II, the Party’s communication structure, and the accused’s role in the Party. The closing statements will resume on 21 October 2013 with the final day OCP’s closing statements and the first day for the defense.
