Reserve Tribunal Judge Selected

The Supreme Council of Magistracy has named a Zambian judge to serve as an alternate at the Khmer Rouge tribunal, officials said.

Florence Mumba, who has experience working at the International Criminal Court in Rwanda and Yugoslavia, will serve as a reserve judge for the

Pre-Trial Chamber, following her nomination by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and Friday’s unanimous approval by the Council.

The Council also approved the nomination of Yeth Charya to chief prosecutor of Phnom Penh Municipal Court, in an eight-to-one vote. The Council had previously split on the decision, four to four, with King Norodom Sihamoni, its head, remaining neutral.
