Statement by international Co-Prosecutor Andrew Cayley on his resignation

Having tendered my resignation to the Secretary-General of the United Nations in August 2013, I will be leaving the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) for personal reasons on 16 September 2013. I will join my family who returned home from Cambodia in June 2013.  It is anticipated that the Reserve International Co-Prosecutor, Nicholas Koumjian, will be arriving in Cambodia in October 2013.

I would like to thank all the staff of the Office of Co-Prosecutors for their dedication over these past years.  As a court and as an office we have faced many challenges together.  I would also like to pay tribute to Madam Chea Leang, the National Co-Prosecutor, Chakriya Yet, the Deputy National Co-Prosecutor and William Smith the International Deputy Co-Prosecutor for the collaborative and friendly environment in which we have worked together.

I wish the court well and I certainly hope that some of the immediate financial issues the court faces can be resolved to allow the caseload to be completed in an orderly and timely fashion.  It has been a great honour to be part of this historic process of bringing a measure of justice to the Cambodian people.
