Samay ousted

Members of the Bar Association of Cambodia (BAC) voted to disbar lawyer Benson Samay

following his controversial appointment as the country's sole official notary. A

recent meeting saw 138 of the 142 members in attendance vote that the position of

notary was incompatible with that of a lawyer. Technically this means that Samay,

a former interim president of the Association, cannot practice law in Cambodia, but

he said the expulsion was not legal as proper procedures had not been followed. "This

threatening action is criminal in the eyes of the law," he stated in a press

release, "and [members of the BAC] should be punished for this shameful act."
