Anti-corruption safeguards inadequate, watchdog group reports

The UN and Cambodian Government released a joint statement Monday announcing "important progress" in the construction of anti-corruption mechanisms at the tribunal. But the Open Society Justice Initiative says it's not enough. The monitoring group claims the new plan is not significantly different from the safeguards that have been in place.

Perhaps the corruption issue will be discussed further at the tribunal's upcoming Plenary Session, which begins Monday.
