New Pailin court to expedite legal process

THE Ministry of Justice is set to establish a court in Pailin province, said Kong Duong, director of the provincial Department of Information. He said yesterday that provincial governor Y Chhean had proposed the establishment of a local court to prevent Pailin cases being forwarded to Battambang, more than 60 kilometres distant. “When the people have court cases they have to go to Battambang, which costs time and money,” Kong Duong said. “We want to have a court here as soon as possible.” He said ministry officials had travelled to Pailin this week to discuss the plan, and that a site for the court had been chosen.
