The drafted law requires 11 members in the Supreme Council of Magistracy, including the Minister of justice, who will be a permanent member. "Having a political figure as the Minister of Justice to take this role in the judicial branch might allow the effective separation of power. According to my research, France (with the same legal system as ours) doesn't entitle any executive branch member to take part in the council," said Mr. Duch Piseth, Trial Monitoring Coordinator at the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR).

Ou Virak, chairman at the Cambodian Center for Human Rights, said yesterday that the only thing surprising about the violence from protesters was how long it had taken. “I’m completely surprised that it has taken this long for a violent reaction from the CNRP supporters or the people frustrated by the government’s response to expression,” he said. “You look at the injustice [in society], there must be a lot of frustrated and angry people out there . . . the security forces have not been behaving themselves anyway, and they’ve pretty much acted as thugs as well. It’s pretty upsetting to see how this has all played out.”
