The UN has submitted a list of two nominations for outgoing international co-prosecutor Robert Petit at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) to the Cambodian Supreme Council of the Magistracy.

UK prosecutor Andrew Cayley, who is currently defending the Liberian president at La Hay, and Paul Coffey, an alternative prosecutor for Robert Petit, are named, a press release issued by the ECCC said on August 20.

Robert Petit submitted his resignation in June after his request to expand the investigation of Khmer Rouge crime elements was not accepted.

The Cambodian Supreme Council of the Magistracy will announce its final decision at the end of the month./.
