The Editor

The Editor,

Regarding the front page article on Dr. Gavin Scott in the

previous edition of the Phnom Penh Post, the Post was incorrect in naming me as

Dr. Scott's lawyer.

Neither I nor Dirksen Flipse Doran & Lê were

retained by Dr. Scott, and we have not entered into any Attorney-Client

relations with him.

I am a commercial lawyer and DFDL is a commercial law

firm. We have no experience handling criminal matters in Cambodia and are not

licensed to appear alone in Cambodian court. This, however, does not change the

fact that Dr. Scott deserves competent and vigorous legal representation and

deserves to have his human rights protected to the fullest extent of domestic

and international law-regardless of whether the allegations against him are

true. To this end, and at the request of a concerned business acquaintance, I

went to the detention center the day after Dr. Scott was incarcerated to assist

Dr. Scott in locating qualified defence counsel.

- David Doran, Phnom Penh.
