KR tribunal law finished

Government lawyers have now finished their second draft law on a future tribunal

to judge Khmer Rouge atrocities.

The draft will be presented next week to the Task Force, headed by Minister of the

Council of Ministers Sok An, that is responsible for dealing with the setting up

of the tribunal.

According to Director of the Legal Reform Unit under the Council of Ministers, Heng

Vong Bunchhat, the draft law may need to be altered after discussions with the Task

Force members.

Bunchhat refused to reveal any details about the draft law because he has been pestered

by too many journalists lately.
