Support to the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC)

Description

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) is a special Cambodian court that receives international assistance through the United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trials (UNAKRT). The mandate of the ECCC covers investigations into serious violations of human rights and international humanitarian rights committed during the rule of the Khmer Rouge from 1975 to 1979. The aim of the court is to judge the remaining leaders of the Khmer Rouge for the crimes they have committed. 1.7 million people are estimated to have been killed as victims of the genocide. The UN supports the operations of the ECCC based on the resolution (57/228B) made in 2003. All the expenses are covered by voluntary donations from the international community. The ECCC is eligible for official development assistance (ODA).
