Before being hired, the international judges at the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, set up to try the Khmer Rouge, were interviewed by a panel of international judges. This process has been formalized in the statute for the Lebanon Tribunal, which is currently being created at The Hague. The UN Secretary General has appointed Mohamed Amin El Mahdi, a former Egyptian judge at the ICTY, and Erik Mose, a Norwegian judge at the ICTR. These judges will interview the candidates alongside the UN Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs and Legal Counsel, Nicolas Michel.
