In these proceedings two preliminary results from the BESIII collaboration on polarized Λ and are reported. Both results are first observations and concern the resonant and non-resonant processes and at , respectively. For the relative phase between the electric and magnetic form factors, ΔΦ, has for the first time been determined, . That allows for a simultaneous measurement also of the asymmetry decay parameters , and . The measured value of differs by 17(3)% from the PDG value. The simultaneous measurement for the asymmetry parameters allows for the most precise test of CP violation conducted for Λ decays, ACP = −0.006(12)stat(7)syst. The reaction at is the first complete measurement of the time-like electric (GE) and magnetic (GM) form factor of any baryon as also the ratio R = |(GE/(GM)| and ΔΦ have been determined: R = 0.96(14)(12) and . The obtained cross-section and effective form factor are σ = 119.0(53)stat(51)syst pb and |G| = 0.123(3)stat(3)syst, respectively.
