GOVT SHAKEUP: Top judge retains post

CAMBODIA'S most senior judge will retain his post amidst a wider government reshuffle, Minister of Justice Ang Vong Vathana said Sunday. Dith Munty, president of the Supreme Court, will not be removed from his post despite Prime Minister Hun Sen's recent call for the retirement of all civil servants over 60 years of age "with no exception". "There is no information about the removal of Dith Munty from the post of president," he told the Post. But he said that the Supreme Council of the Magistracy will vote next week on the proposal to remove Phnom Penh Chief Prosecutor Ouk Savuth and replace him with Yet Chakrya, currently serving as provincial prosecutor in Banteay Meanchey.
