KR Tribunal: Bar takes no action on KRT lawyer

KR Tribunal
The Alaska Bar Association has decided to take no action against Michael Karnavas, defence lawyer for Ieng Sary, after judges at the Khmer Rouge tribunal threatened to sanction him in March for publishing court documents on an independent Web site. Karnavas said Thursday he felt "vindicated" by the bar's decision, which stated that the judges' "breach of confidentiality" over their Web site did not warrant a formal investigation. "I feel vindicated and can only hope to get a hearing before the pretrial chamber on this matter," Karnavas said. Lawyers took down a selection of documents from the Web site in March, but denied any of them were confidential.
