Logo of Phnom Penh Post newspaper Phnom Penh Post - In Brief: BAR ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT SWORN IN



new president of the Cambodian Bar Association sworn into office

Tuesday in a ceremony presided over by Deputy Prime Minister Sok An.

Former president of two terms Ky Tech welcomed the appointment of Chiv

Songhak, wishing him "success in bringing justice to all people".


Songhak ran to victory largely unopposed on October 16 amid warnings

that the bar's new leader would have to struggle against corruption.

Judicial critics say lawyers are little more than middlemen between

clients and graft-prone judges.
