Judicial rotations set to begin

JUDGES, prosecutors and deputy prosecutors across the country will soon be reshuffled as part of an ongoing component of judicial reform, a court official said Tuesday.

Sam Prachea Manith, assistant to the Supreme Council of the Magistracy, said the council held a meeting on January 27 to discuss the rotations, but declined to give further details.

Sok Kalyan, deputy prosecutor at the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, said he had already been told that his future post would be director of the Prey Veng provincial court, a position that also entails a judgeship.

“I am still waiting for a Royal decree,” he said.

Sok Kalyan said he was aware of only a few of the new assignments included in the upcoming reshuffle.

“I expect this will help the court system become better in the future,” he said.

“Even now, people do not trust us 100 percent.”
