After attempting to exercise his duties as reserve co-investigating judge for six months, Mr. Kasper-Ansermet tendered his resignation on March 19, 2012 citing his inability to gain the cooperation of the Cambodian national co-investigating judge, Mr. You Bunleng. Mr. Kasper-Ansermet’s resignation was effective May 4, 2012. To replace Kasper-Ansermet, the UN nominated U.S. citizen Mark Harmon, a retired career U.S. Department of Justice prosecutor, who also served more than a decade as a Senior Trial Attorney in the Office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY). Unlike Kasper-Ansermet, the Cambodian Supreme Council of the Magistracy (SCM) confirmed Harmon in the position. The ECCC’s jurisdiction over suspects in the Cases 003/004 has yet to be resolved; and therefore the coinvestigating judges have not made a final determination on whether these individuals should be indicted. Should the national and international coinvestigating judges disagree, there is a formal process under the governing documents of the ECCC for resolving this disagreement in the Pre-Trial Chamber. Before his departure, KasperAnsermet complained publicly that his investigation of Cases 003/004 has been obstructed by the non-cooperation of Cambodian-appointed judges and officials. Judge Bunleng publicly responded that the difficulties had arisen because Kasper-Ansermet had not been confirmed in his appointment due to the latter’s public comments on confidential judicial matters. As Mark Harmon’s nomination has been confirmed by the SCM, we anticipate that he will receive appropriate cooperation from national and international judges and officials. There may be disagreements about whether the suspects in Cases 003/004 should be subject to indictment and trial, but we expect these matters to be resolved by the co-investigative judges and the PreTrial Chamber in accordance with applicable law and procedure. Certification and United States Policy Objectives Certification recognizes the efforts of the UN and RGC to address allegations of corruption and mismanagement within the ECCC. It is not an indication, however, that work is complete. Both parties must continue to exercise oversight of the ECCC’s operations, and the donor community and NGOs must VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:22 Aug 23, 2012 Jkt 226001 continue their vigilant engagement with the United Nations and the Royal Cambodian government to ensure that the ECCC remains judicially independent, corruption-free, and wellmanaged.
