Tribunal Judges Shouldn't need Redemption

Opinion to the Cambodia Daily
Published on May 09, 2006

I was disappointed to read “KR Trial Will Redeem Judges: Spokesman” (Saturday and Sunday, page 3).

According to tribunal spokesman, the tribunal will offer Cambodian judges and prosecutors who have been criticized in the past the chance to rebuild their reputation. The spokesman added: “Whatever their past was, they cannot implement it here”.

This shows they recognize the ineffectiveness of those people, but why are they being promoted to a court with international principles?
