Phnom Penh (FN), Jun. 6 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen emphasized that Cambodia can survive now thanks to reforms, speaking on Tuesday morning (June 6) at an inauguration of new buildings of the Royal Academy for Justice of Cambodia in Phnom Penh.

“We now survive thanks to reforms, so we must continue to keep up with the situation,” said the premier.

The premier added that legal and judicial reform will be introduced in the third mandate as Cambodia has been implementing public administration reform, military reform, and public financial management reform.

In addition, Samdech said that although judiciary in Cambodia has performed well, in particular the initiative to establish regional appeal courts, it still needs to be further reformed.

“We agreed with the establishment of regional appeals courts to resolve the bottleneck of appeals in the justice system," the premier underlined.

On that occasion, premier Hun Sen felt that it was necessary to provide an additional framework to the judiciary in relation to the proceedings of the tribunal, both regional and appellate courts, including the Supreme Court.
