New corruption allegations at ECCC

The notice below has been posted, in giant size, on public boards throughout the court's offices in both English and Khmer. I am curious to find out what report this is describing. Previous kickback allegations at the ECCC have yet to be investigated.

INFORMATION CIRCULAR

A report has been recently received concerning new allegations of corruption regarding deductions from salaries of officials and staff of the ECCC.

To protect and preserve the reputation of the ECCC as a model court for Cambodia, and acting in accordance with the Personnel Handbook, Chapter 11, Section I, on Ethical Conduct for employees of the ECCC, the Director of Administration wishes to inform and direct as follows:

1. Officials and staff of the ECCC may not solicit or accept any gift or other item of monetary value from any employee or any person seeking employment at the ECCC, under any circumstances;

2. Should any case of corrupt activity arise such as taking deductions from salaries or other extortion/bribes, officials or staff must report these to the Complaints Committee, place signed or anonymous written complaints in the suggestions boxes provided or inform the Director of Administration directly;

3. Any official or staff acting contrary to paragraph 1 above shall stand liable before the law of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

On receipt of this Information Circular, relevant Chiefs of Sections shall ensure that it is promptly communicated to all Cambodian officials and staff under his/her supervision in the ECCC.
