Joint Statement by Civil Society (08-02-2011)
(Khmer version only)
The LEGACY Workshop began with opening remarks from Mr. Thun Saray, who emphasized the importance of the ECCC in acting as a model for the judiciary, and a catalyst for ongoing efforts to promote legal and judicial reform in Cambodia. He noted the importance of all key actors working together ‘in order to enable fruitful discussions and dialogues on legacy issues’ and to ensure that the many ‘lessons learned from the ECCC can be positively transferred to the national courts’.
