However, there were still negative and worrying issues to be improved related to pre-trial detention, failure of judges to explanation rights to individual accused, legal representation, and juvenile justice etc.
Judicial Independence
Trial Monitoring Project on 2013-12-04 in CCHR
On 04 December 2013, TMP conducted a radio talk show highlighting the functioning and power of the judiciary. Under the Cambodian constitution, judicial power is an independent power separating from the executive and legislative powers. However, there have been much criticism regarding the performance of the courts which lead to the loss of public belief and confidence due to lack of independence of the judges and prosecutors. Absence of the Law on Organization and Function of the Courts and Law on the Status of Judges and Prosecutors are key factor to influence and hamper the court’s performance independently in line with both domestic and international law. CCHR also provided concrete recommendations to address the issues and those recommendations contain in the Briefing Note on Judicial Reform published 14 July 2013.
