New Supreme Court Chief Justice Appointed

Dith Munthy will replace the controversial Chan Sok as president of Cambodia's supreme

court, as decided by the Supreme Council of Magistracy, SCM member and Appellate

Court prosecutor Henrot Raken said last week.

Munthy, who was the lawyer for Pol Pot and Ieng Sary in the 1979 in absentia trial

in which the Vietnamese-backed Cambodian government sentenced them to death, was

elected the CPP Assembly representative from Kampong Cham in 1993.

Sok was officially elevated early this year to the Supreme Council of Magistracy

and then to the Constitutional Council after apparently being allowed to vote for

himself.
