The UN-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal said on Friday that it has appointed a new international judge at the Supreme Court Chamber.
The court statement released today said following the nomination by the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, and the approval by the Supreme Council of the Magistracy, has appointed Ms. Maureen Harding Clark from Ireland as an international judge of the Supreme Court Chamber.
Judge Clark replaces Judge Agnieszka Klonowieka Milart who has resigned in late 2018. Judge Clark was appointed as reserve international Co-Investigating Judge at the Extraordinary Chamber in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) in 2015.
The ECCC has convicted three former Khmer Rouge leaders and sentenced them to life in prison since it was established in 2006. These are Kaing Guek Eav, Khieu Samphan and Nuon Chea.
