The Honourable Mr Justice Patrick CHAN Siu-oi, GBM
The Paper gives a good introduction for those who do not know too much about Cambodia’s legal system. It sets out very clear objectives relating to the rule of law, with the main theme on access to justice.
There is also a commendable summary tracing the history of the country, its developments throughout the years, all the efforts made in striving to achieve a better system, and finally explaining the present position on the law and legal system.
There is a clear description of the legal aid scheme, with an analysis of its features. The analysis is not in-depth, but demonstrates a good understanding of the problems and challenges ahead.
The proposed changes and constitutional amendments are clear but may need further elaboration to relate them to the main theme. A very good effort.
Mr CHAN Chak-Ming
High standard and efficient presentation on an interesting topic. Well-delivered. A good introduction to those not familiar with Cambodia legal system.
