KR deal

Cambodia's ratification of the UN-sanctioned deal for a Khmer Rouge tribunal will take priority over the national elections, said Kol Peng, advisor to National Assembly (NA) President, Prince Norodom Ranariddh. The draft will be passed to the NA's Standing Committee on June 27 and then go through other committees. Peng said it should not prove complicated as UN international law was rarely challenged and needed only to be ratified, not changed. Ratification will be prioritized because of the "contents of Cambodian law", and had nothing to do with Hun Sen's letter exhorting legislators to "expedite ratification".
