ECCC sign MoU with jurists’ association

The Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Sala Traju Association, a jurists’ research group based in Phnom Penh. The agreement includes cooperation on training and the promotion of legal knowledge to members of the association.

In a social media post, the ECCC said on August 3 that the MoU was signed between the ECCC, represented by Kranh Tony, secretary of state of the Office of the Council of Ministers and acting director of administration of the ECCC, with Sala Traju Association represented by Ty Janith, the association’s executive committee president, on August 2.

The post announced that the MoU aimed to improve collaboration through a programme of training that will include workshops, curriculum development for members, study tours, a moot court at the ECCC and the sharing of documents.

The MoU was an implementation of the residual functions of the ECCC, through which the Cambodian government and the UN have agreed on the "Addendum on the Transitional Arrangements and the Completion of Work of the Extraordinary Chambers" for an additional three years, from 2023 to 2025.

“The work includes some legal tasks, including the management and dissemination of the ECCC’s archives, education and dissemination of the achievements and legacy of the ECCC, as well as monitoring the enforcement of moral and collective reparations to civil parties,” said Tony

The association’s Janith praised the collaboration with the Khmer Rouge Tribunal on training, legal knowledge advancement, and research in particular.

The signing of the MoU is part of the sharing of experiences and the distribution of research documents to students and researchers in order to improve human resource training and disseminate the ECCC's valuable legal achievements to humanity for the benefit of the promotion of international justice.
