Paul Richmond trains Lao judicial officials on international fair trial standards

From 17-18 May 2010, Paul Richmond trained 80 Lao judges, public prosecutors and lawyers on international fair trial standards. Paul was commissioned as an expert on the right to a fair trial under international law by the United Nations Development Programme, the International Commission of Jurists and the International Law Project of the Laos Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The training workshop – the first of its kind in Laos – followed the Laos government’s ratification of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights in September 2009.
