Problems Arising from the Mixed Composition and Structure of the Cambodian Extraordinary Chambers

Preview

This contribution addresses the structure and composition of the Cambodian Extraordinary Chambers (CEC), in particular the super-majority voting arrangements for national and international judges. These rules, which reflect difficult negotiations between the United Nations and the Cambodian Government, are likely to impede trials by allowing not only determinations of guilt, but also key evidentiary decisions, to go unresolved. This may make the effective operation of the CEC impossible.
