Jailed Khmer Rouge leader Ieng Thirith (pictured), wife of Ieng Sary and former social affairs minister, will have her detention appeal heard before tribunal judges May 21, officials said.
Ieng Tirith 76, is charged with crimes against humanity. She was arrested Nov. 12, 2007, with Ieng Sary, in Phnom Penh.
Tribunal officials said a live camera feed will be in place for her May 21 hearing, which will determine whether she is kept in tribunal detention ahead of trial.
She has denied any wrong-doing as a minister of the regime, claiming she worked to help people and promising not to leave the country, destroy evidence or threaten witnesses if she is released on bail.
