Australia donates $500,000 to KRT

The Australian government will donate A$500,000 (US$457,000) to the

Cambodian side of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal (KRT), Bob McMullan,

Australian parliamentary secretary for international development

assistance, announced April 3 during a three-day visit to Phnom Penh.

“It is very important that the court makes progress and we didn’t want

to see it stop because of budget deficit on the Cambodian side,”

McMullan said. Australia also announced they would give A$570,000 to

help with preparations and education programs in the run up to the

Cambodian national elections in July. (Cat Barton)
