CNN spotlights corruption at tribunal

A new CNN documentary includes footage of anonymous Khmer Rouge tribunal staffers explaining the "kickback" system at the court. KI Media has the report uploaded on its website.

Staffers claim that tribunal administration head Sean Visoth, who has been on sick leave since November, collected up to $40,000 a month in kickbacks.

It will be interesting to see what kind of affect this high-profile international media exposure will have on the court. Today's Cambodia Daily reports that the Cambodian government still denies any evidence of wrongdoing at the ECCC. The fact that CNN only used anonymous sources (with faces and voices disguised) will certainly lessen whatever impact the report has.
