Kasper-Ansermet tenders resignation

BREAKING

After months of fighting, reserve international co-investigating judge Laurent Kasper-Ansermet has tendered his resignation from the Khmer Rouge tribunal.

Kasper-Ansermet and his Cambodian counterpart, You Bunleng, have repeatedly clashed over whether Kasper-Ansermet has authority to act.

Cambodia’s Supreme Council of Magistracy refused to endorse UN-appointed Kasper-Ansermet as the international co-investigating judge, which has triggered a seemingly insurmountable division between national and international staff at the court.

Kasper-Ansermet was determined to investigate government-opposed cases 003 and 004 and had issued decisions to this effect.
