Kingdom’s prosecutors in transfer

Twenty-two prosecutors throughout the Kingdom have been either appointed or transferred in a reshuffle that one prominent Senate member said was meant to strengthen the judicial system.

A royal decree dated October 27 said the new appointments and transfers applied to prosecutors, deputy prosecutors and deputy prosecutor generals from Kampong Speu, Battambang, Mondulkiri, Kampong Thom, Svay Rieng, Preah Sihanouk, Ratanakiri, Tbong Khmum, Prey Veng and Koh Kong provinces.

The ruling Cambodian People’s Party spokesman Sok Eysan told The Post on Tuesday that the reshuffle also aimed to prevent corruption in the judicial system.

“This exercise is to strengthen the judicial system. The Supreme Council of Magistracy transfers judges and prosecutors every four years. The transfer from one province to another serves to ensure that a prosecutor does not remain in his position for too long,” he said.

The royal decree appoints Phnom Penh municipal court prosecutor Yet Chakriya as deputy prosecutor general of the Supreme Court.

Prey Veng provincial court prosecutor Meas Sopheakdey has been appointed deputy prosecutor general of the appeal court.
