Prosecutor nomination put forward?

Andrew Cayley said Thursday via email that he may have been nominated by the UN to replace outgoing international co-prosecutor Robert Petit, whose resignation goes into effect September 1.

"I understand that I may be one of two persons nominated by the Secretary-General, but I have had no formal confirmation of that," he wrote. "I understand that the matter now rests with the Cambodian Supreme Council of the Magistracy.  That is all I can say at this stage."

A UN court spokeswoman said Wednesday that the UN had forwarded a nomination to the Supreme Council of the Magistracy, though she declined to offer any information on the candidate. 

The assistant secretary general at the council said Wednesday that the body had not received the nomination.

Cayley is currently defending Ivan Cermak at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.
