Judicial shuffle good for courts

Dear Editor,

[Re: "Legal body to force out elder judges, prosecutors", July 31] I'm pleased to learn that elder judges and prosecutors will retire and personally see it as a stepping stone to larger changes within the legal system if Cambodia is to reform its most criticised judiciary. I believe second-generation judges and prosecutors would work just as efficiently, if not more so.

This doesn't mean all elder judges and prosecutors have to be replaced; in my opinion, the competent and efficient ones should be kept. Since first-generation judges and prosecutors will have to be replaced sooner or later ... it is better to start doing it now. The judiciary has been heavily criticised, and thus this change should be appreciated.
