Nepotism alleged, denied in Cambodia's military court

Is there nepotism in the Military Court of Cambodia? According to this report, the place is populated by relatives of the chief judge, a lieutenant general. They include his wife, three sons, and two cousins. "The Law on Organisation and Activities of Courts says the military court only has jurisdiction over military crimes committed by military personnel. If a member of the army commits a 'civilian' crime like robbery or assault, they are to be tried by civilian court."
