Bid to remove judge Silvia Cartwright

Defence teams at the Khmer Rouge tribunal yesterday continued their battle to have New Zealand judge Silvia Cartwright removed from the bench hearing the court’s landmark Case 002.

Ieng Sary’s defence counsel filed the latest motion, which called for disqualification or an order for her to cease and desist ex parte communications with international co-prosecutor Andrew Cayley.

“For Judge Cartwright to offer Inter-national Co-Prosecutor Cayley asymmetrical access to her ... shows that she is biased in favour of the OCP, or at a minimum gives rise to an appearance of bias,” Ieng Sary’s defence counsel wrote in an application published by the court yesterday.
