An Unprecedented Challenge of a Judge

by Stan Starygin
The content of the motion discussed in the article below is particularly of great interest as it is for the first time in Cambodian history that a judge is being impeached by someone besides the executive. Under normal circumstances lawyers in this country defense lawyers would bury arguments which could potentially help their clients if those documents had a tint of a possibility of invoking the anger of the presiding judge. Regardless of the outcome of this affair, ECCC lawyers' courageous act will establish a precedent and send a signal that things which are completely off-limits in ordinary Cambodians courts do fly at the ECCC.
