Supreme Court sets hearing date

BREAKING NEWS: Cambodia's Supreme Court has set a date for the hearing to review Born Samnang's and Sok Sam Oeun's case, according to Cambodge Soir.

Samnang's defense lawyer submitted the case to the court a year ago.

"I do not think the decision will be different from previous courts," he said at a four-year memorial for Vichea in January.

Indeed, the choice of date doesn't bode well: December 31, when relatively few diplomats, foreign journalists and NGO workers will be in the country.

More as things develop -- if they do.

By the way, happy Human Rights Day!
