OSJI report on ECCC

On June 28, the Open Society Justice Initiative (OSJI), a New York-based NGO, issued

a report on progress and challenges at the Extraordinary Courts in the Chambers of

Cambodia. The report said that there had been "significant" progress at

the hybrid tribunal over the course of the last year towards laying the groundwork

for prosecutions and trials. But it added that the numerous delays in adopting rules

of internal procedure and addressing allegations of corruption and political interference

have cost the court credibility in the eyes of many observers, both inside and outside

of Cambodia. The new report notes that a UNDP audit into some of these human resource

issues has been carried out, but states that only limited information about the results,

or the court's response to the results, has so far been released to the public.
