A U.N. backed tribunal rejects an appeal for bail for Brother No 2

Anna Chan:

A former Khmer Rouge regime leader will be living in a Cambodian jail ahead of his war crimes trial. According to the BBC, Nuon Chea, also known as Brother Number 2, must remain in custody. He faces charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity for his role in the Khmer Rouge regime during the 1970's. He's thought by many to have been the ideological driving force behind the regime. He denies committing any crime, that he isn't a risk to the public and that he wont attempt to influence potential witnesses. The trial is expected to happen later this year.
