20 October 2011The United Nations legal chief today strongly urged the Cambodian Government to refrain from interfering in any way with the judicial process relating to the United Nations-backed tribunal set up to try those accused of the worst crimes under the notorious Khmer Rouge regime in the late 1970s. Patricia O’Brien, the UN Legal Counsel, met with Cambodia’s Deputy Prime Minister Sok An in Phnom Penh, the capital, to discuss recent developments at the tribunal, known as the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC).Last week Judge Siegfried Blunk, the international co-investigating judge at the ECCC, resigned from the tribunal. He cited repeated statements by senior Government officials opposing the progress of what are known as Cases 003 and 004 – which concern senior Khmer Rouge officials suspected of being responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.In a statement issued after her meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister, Ms. O’Brien voiced concern about recent developments at the ECCC and reiterated the UN’s call on everyone to respect the integrity and independence of the tribunal’s judicial process.“The Legal Counsel strongly urged the Royal Government of Cambodia to refrain from statements opposing the progress of Cases 003 and 004 and to refrain from interfering in any way whatsoever with the judicial process,” the statement noted.“She emphasized the obligation of the Royal Government of Cambodia to cooperate fully with the ECCC.”The tribunal, which uses a mixture of Cambodian and foreign judges and personnel, is tasked with trying those alleged responsible for mass killings and other crimes committed under the Khmer Rouge, which ruled Cambodia between 1975 and 1979. Up to three million people died under the regime in what is widely recognized as genocide.
highlights Pandya’s comments were labelled ‘misogynistic’ and ‘racist’Pandya and Rahul were suspended for their comments on Koffee With KaranBoth are likely to miss the tour to New Zealand New Delhi: Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul face an uncertain future after being suspended from the Indian team and ordered back home for the series against Australia for their controversial remarks on the show Koffee With Karan. The Committee of Administrators (CoA) wants the Supreme Court to appoint an ombudsman to decide the fate of the two players, who have already missed the ODI series against Australia and are set to sit out of the tour of New Zealand as well. With the Supreme Court now willing to hear matters related to the BCCI only next week, the wait for the two players has been prolonged. BCCI president CK Khanna has urged the CoA to allow Pandya and Rahul to play while the inquiry is being conducted.Khanna said calling the SGM to appoint an ombudsman to investigate the two players’ conduct, as demanded by Board officials, wouldn’t be right as the Supreme Court is due to take up the issue next week.”They made a mistake, and they have already been suspended and called back from the series against Australia. They have also submitted an unconditional apology. I suggest that pending inquiry we reinstate both the cricketers into the Indian squad immediately and allow them to join the team in New Zealand at the earliest. What Pandya said and Rahul acted as a by-stander to is inappropriate and absolutely wrong, but in my personal opinion, to treat them like lawbreakers is wrong too. Both these cricketers need game time before the World Cup which starts in four months’ time. We should give these growing cricketers chance to correct themselves morally,” Khanna wrote in a letter to the Committee of Administrators (CoA) running the BCCI. The appointment of an ombudsman was sought by the Committee of Administrators (CoA) to investigate the duo’s comments on hookups with multiple women and being casual about it with their families. With the bench nominating former Additional Solicitor General PS Narsimha as the new amicus, the case of appointment of a permanent or ad-hoc ombudsman will only come up as and when the new amicus takes charge.Khanna had echoed Rai’s sentiment on early resolution of the matter. “Pandya and Rahul certainly brought disrepute to the board with their inappropriate comments. For that, the BCCI has already suspended them provisionally. However, I am also of the view that the matter needs to be sorted at the earliest,” he had told PTI.The situation came into light with this one conversation when Johar was asking questions about not asking women’s name in a night club and what do men talk about. To this, Pandya replied, “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move.” Pandya also boasted about how he casually discussed his sex life with his parents. “When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, ‘Main karke aya hai aaj (I had sex today)’. At a party my parents asked me ‘acha tera wala (women) kaun sa hai [who is your interest here?] so I said yeh, yeh, yeh (pointing out women)’ and they were like ‘waah proud of you beta’,” Pandya replied with laughter. Following the outrage, Hotstar removed the episode from the web while Pandya’s father Himanshu has said that the comments should not be taken seriously as his son was indulging in chatter in a light-hearted manner.
