New York, Mar 30 2012
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has decided to initiate a selection process for new international judges for the United Nations-backed Cambodia genocide tribunal, and stressed that the Government must provide full cooperation so they can carry out their duties.
Recent months have witnessed the resignations of the international co-investigating judge, Siegfried Blunk, and the reserve international co-investigating judge, Laurent Kasper-Ansermet, from the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC).
Judge Blunk cited attempted interference by Government officials in the court’s proceedings, while Judge Kasper-Ansermet stated that he was being prevented from properly and freely carrying out his duties at the tribunal, which was set up as an independent court using a mixture of Cambodian and foreign personnel.
“The circumstances that have given rise to these two resignations remain worrying,” said a <“http://www.un.org/sg/statements/index.asp?nid=5961“>statement issued by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.
Both judges were working on cases 003 and 004, which involve former senior members of the Khmer Rouge military suspected of being responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.
“The Secretary-General believes that it is essential that the judicial process in relation to cases 003 and 004 be brought back onto a positive course,” said the statement.
Mr. Ban has decided to initiate a process for the selection of a new international co-investigating judge, and a new reserve international co-investigating judge, in accordance with the provisions of the agreement signed by the UN and Cambodia in setting up the court.
At the same time, their selection by the Secretary-General will not by itself fully address the concerns that have arisen in regard to the judicial process in these cases, the statement noted.
“It is essential that the Royal Government of Cambodia extend full cooperation to the new judges once it has been informed by the Secretary-General of their selection,” it stated, adding that the new judges should be promptly appointed by the Cambodian authorities.
The new international co-investigation judge, the statement added, should be afforded “every assistance and full cooperation” to carry out his or her functions.
“The Secretary-General encourages the Royal Government of Cambodia and the international community to view the selection of the new judges as an opportunity to move forward beyond recent events, and enable the ECCC to carry out its obligations in full by considering all of the cases before it in accordance with international standards of fairness” the statement added.
Mr. Ban also encouraged all partners to provide financial contributions to enable the court, which faces a serious funding challenge, to concentrate on the critical judicial work at hand.
The ECCC is designated to try those deemed most responsible for crimes and serious violations of Cambodian and international law between 17 April 1975 and 6 January 1979 during the Khmer Rouge regime.

Beijing – Chinese authorities have detained six people for spreading rumours that fuelled speculation of a possible coup attempt, and have ordered microblogging websites to suspend their comment functions to allow a ‘clean-up,’ media reports said Saturday.
State media said police had detained six people and closed 16 websites accused of spreading rumours of military vehicles entering Beijing and possible political upheaval.
There has been no evidence of any unusual troop movement in Beijing since the rumours began circulating on March 19.
The rumours followed the removal on March 15 of Chongqing regional Communist Party leader Bo Xilai, who was previously tipped to win a top national post after the party’s five-yearly congress in October.
A notice on the popular Twitter-like microblogging site Weibo, operated by Sina.com, said its comments function would be suspended for 72 hours from early Saturday.
The Tencent microblogging site, t.qq.com, said its comment function was suspended for the same period after it had been used to repost ‘harmful information.’
It said the clean-up was ordered because of the ‘unhealthy social impact of rumours and other illegal information spread through microblogging.’
The official Xinhua news agency quoted a government spokesman as saying Sina and Tencent had also been ‘criticized and punished’ over the spread of the political rumours.
‘Political change is a rumour, political reform is also a rumour,’ well-known artist and dissident Ai Weiwei posted on Twitter on Saturday in response to the suspension of microblog comments.
Ai was apparently referring to remarks by Premier Wen Jiabao, who publicly criticized Bo one day before his sacking was announced and said the ruling party must allow ‘political reform’ or risk a return to the chaos of the 1966-76 Cultural Revolution.
Wen’s remarks were seen as a rebuke to conservative supporters of Bo who oppose the party’s policy of gradual political reform towards one-party ‘socialist democracy.’
Several powerful security and military leaders were believed to have backed Bo, including Zhou Yongkang, China’s top public security official.
Zhou was the only one of the nine members of the all-powerful Standing Committee of the party’s Politburo to oppose a decision to oust Bo at a meeting on March 7, the New York Times reported on Friday.
State media have reported Zhou’s attendance and comments at several party and public meetings since March 7, suggesting that he is working normally.
A commentary on Saturday in People’s Daily, the party’s official newspaper, urged people to ignore ‘external noise,’ gossip and rumours, and to ‘seek progress while ensuring stability.’
But rumours linked to Bo’s demise continued to circulate Saturday, including speculation that a scandal preceding his removal from Chongqing was spurred by an investigation of the death of a British man with connections to Bo’s family.
The scandal began after Wang Lijun, Chongqing’s former police chief, entered a US consulate in China on February 6.
Wang stayed in the consulate overnight before leaving voluntarily, US officials said while declining to say what he did there.
Chinese authorities later said Wang was under investigation for unspecified offences.
The latest rumours claimed that Bo had sidelined Wang because the celebrated ‘super cop’ was investigating Bo’s wife’s links to the death of the British man in Chongqing in November.
Despite his removal from Chongqing, Bo retains a seat on the 25-member Politburo.
Another rumour on the US-based Chinese dissident website Boxun.com on Saturday said Bo’s supporters had persuaded top leaders to give him a seat in the Politburo’s Standing Committee in October and a new post as state vice premier.
Boxun quoted sources as saying the Standing Committee agreed the compromise on condition that Bo would report regularly to the new party leader and state premier, expected to be Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang, respectively.
Some 200 million of China’s estimated 500 million internet users hold microblog accounts.

Investors should be cautious when pursuing the opportunities for growth present in Myanmar and Cambodia, Southeast Asia’s frontier markets, Templeton Asset Management Ltd. said.
While Myanmar’s natural resources of oil, gas and minerals are positive factors, there are “areas of concern,” Templeton portfolio manager Dennis Lim wrote in a note today on Chairman Mark Mobius’s blog. Although Cambodia is “ideally located” to benefit from trade with Thailand, Vietnam and Laos, investors need to study corporate governance standards, he said.
“Weaknesses we’re especially mindful of in Myanmar are lack of a proper legal structure, the lack of a well-developed banking system, and the lack of solid foreign exchange operations,” Lim wrote. “In Cambodia, I would caution potential investors to monitor corporate governance standards to ensure investors are treated fairly.”
Myanmar will tomorrow hold its most inclusive elections since the military rejected an opposition victory in 1990. Prospects of democratic foundations in the nation of 64 million people between China and India encouraged the U.S. to consider easing sanctions, with companies from General Electric Co. to Standard Chartered Plc awaiting opportunities to invest.
Phnom Penh IPO
In Cambodia, state-owned Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority will have its initial public offering next month, making it the first to be traded on the stock exchange that opened last July without a single listed company. The Cambodian government has said it wants to spur economic development by selling off state- owned companies and encouraging private enterprises to expand with new funding.
Mobius, who oversees more than $50 billion in emerging- markets assets as executive chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group, has said he’s watching the Cambodian railroad industry “with particular interest.”
Indonesia, whose natural resources include timber and coal, can benefit from increasing global demand for commodities as emerging markets invest in infrastructure, Lim said. Thailand, which suffered its worst floods in almost 70 years in 2011, will have a sound economic recovery and has “positive” long-term fundamentals, he said.
“For value investors like us, current valuations in Thailand generally remain attractive, though the potential growth obstacles do bear ongoing scrutiny,” Lim said. He cited agriculture, tourism and offshore gas as drivers of growth.
Singapore’s stock exchange is a conduit through which Templeton can access new markets because of listings by some companies from the frontier economies, Lim wrote.
“Investing in Singapore, though, comes with its own set of challenges,” he said. “Its domestic market is small and the economy is a very open one as it doesn’t restrict trade, development and capital flows with other countries. This means that Singapore is more closely linked to the movements of the global markets and affected by global market volatility like the global financial crisis and the challenges from the euro zone.”

PHNOM PENH (AFP) – Cambodia told China on Saturday it wanted Asia to resolve the South China Sea dispute, as Phnom Penh prepares to host a regional summit where the maritime row is likely to surface.
Prime Minister Hun Sen told visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao he wanted the simmering conflict to be resolved within the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) framework so it doesn’t become more “complex”, according to the premier’s advisor Sri Thamrong.
“Our position is that we want each involved country to resolve the issue within the framework of ASEAN and China, not to internationalise it,” Sri told reporters after talks between the two leaders in the Cambodian capital.
“But the prime minister said we are also facing difficulties because during the summit, other leaders could bring up the issue and we can’t ban them from talking.”
China and Taiwan claim all of the South China Sea, while four ASEAN countries — the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei — have overlapping claims to parts of it.
ASEAN leaders are holding a two-day gathering in Phnom Penh next week, and the Philippines is among the countries expected to raise the conflict in the South China Sea, which has seen several incidents recently between claimants.
Hu’s four-day visit is the first by a Chinese head of state to Cambodia in 12 years and observers say it is timed to showcase Beijing’s close relationship with the current ASEAN chair, and perhaps encourage the hosts to keep the maritime row off the summit agenda.
The region is a conduit for more than one-third of the world’s seaborne trade and half its traffic in oil and gas, and major petroleum deposits are believed to lie below the seabed.
Beijing opposes internationalising the conflict and prefers to negotiate with its weaker regional neighbours individually rather than collectively. Hu is set to leave Cambodia on Monday, a day before the ASEAN summit opens.

PHNOM PENH: Chinese President Hu Jintao asked close economic ally Cambodia on Saturday not to push talks on the vexed issue of the South China Sea “too fast” as he pledged to double bilateral trade to $5 billion and announced fresh aid to the impoverished country.
Cambodia holds the rotating chair of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) this year, giving it influence over the agenda and talks over resolving growing tensions in the disputed maritime area.
Hun Sen told Hu that while other ASEAN countries would likely raise the issue at the body’s two-day summit in Phnom Penh starting on Tuesday, Cambodia shared China’s belief that the issue should not be “internationalized,” according to Sri Thamrong.
Phnom Penh has already said the issue is off the official agenda for the meeting.
The Philippines and Vietnam have accused China of flexing its military muscles over the region believed to be rich in energy reserves and which has seen a rise in naval brinkmanship among the three nations in recent years.
Hu told Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen that China wanted to move toward finalizing a code of conduct in the South China Sea but not “too fast” so that the dispute does not threaten regional stability, Hun Sen’s adviser Sry Thamrong told reporters after the leaders’ meeting in Phnom Penh.
That would risk worsening a divide in ASEAN over how to handle the decades-old territorial dispute at a time when Washington is refocusing its military attention on Asia and strengthening its alliance with the Philippines.
China, which says it has sovereignty over the sea and the islands within a looping “nine-dashed line” on its maps, rejected a Philippine proposal within ASEAN in November to define contested areas and allow joint development.
The two leaders agreed to target a doubling in bilateral trade to $5 billion by 2017, according to Cambodia’s top government spokesman Khieu Kanharith.
China has pledged more than $2 billion in aid to Cambodia since 1992, mostly in soft loans, Cambodia’s government says.
China’s foreign direct investment in the country was $1.19 billion in 2011, almost 10 times that of the United States, according to an estimate by the government’s Council for the Development of Cambodia.

“We cannot forget it. We will always remember it.”
Opposition leader Sam Rainsy says the anniversary of a deadly grenade attack in Phnom Penh 15 years ago must not be forgotten.
The March 30, 1997, attack on an opposition rally killed 16 people and wounded hundreds more.
“We cannot forget it,” Sam Rainsy told VOA Khmer in a TV interview. “We will always remember it.”
No one was ever arrested for the attack, which was widely blamed on supporters of the then co-prime minister, Hun Sen, who seized power in a violent coup several months later.
Sam Rainsy told VOA Khmer he did not want the families of victims to lose hope.
He has filed lawsuits in the courts of the US and France, he said, but it took decades even for Khmer Rouge leaders to be brought to trial.
Sam Rainsy has also filed suit in a US court against Prime Minister Hun Sen for alleged crimes in the “K-5” deforestation camp.
“We will have to fight for justice to avoid such crimes in the future,” he said. “I still hope the perpetrator will face his day in court.”

“He said, ‘Comrade, clear them out.'”
Testifying for a seventh day before the Khmer Rouge tribunal, convicted prison chief Duch said he was ordered to torture prisoners by Nuon Chea, the regime’s chief ideologue, who is on trial for atrocity crimes.
Duch said Pol Pot, the leader of the secretive regime, told him not to use torture as an interrogation measure, as more and more suspected spies and informants were brought to the prison he ran, S-21.
Three days later, Nuon Chea ordered him to extract confessions under torture, Duch said.
Duch is helping prosecutors describe the inner workings of the regime as they seek to tie three suspects—Nuon Chea, Khieu Samphan, and Ieng Sary—to atrocity crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge under their leadership.
Duch said Nuon Chea also ordered him to execute all remaining prisoners at S-21 as Vietnamese-led forces ousted the Khmer Rouge from the power and pushed them out of the capital.
“He said, ‘Comrade, clear them out,'” Duch quoted Noun Chea as saying. Duch said that he asked to spare the lives of four prisoners, but those prisoners were later killed by other prison cadre as Vietnamese troops reached Phnom Penh.
In contrast to the details Duch has provided on Nuon Chea’s role in the Khmer Rouge, Duch told the court Thursday he knew little of Ieng Sary’s work and had seen him only twice during the reign of the regime.
