The Australian government has donated US$3.5 million to the Khmer Rouge tribunal, which has been struggling under a US$40 million shortfall since July. "We are aware of inappropriate practices on the Cambodian side [of the ECCC], but we are sure that these issues will be promptly and fully investigated," said an Australian embassy spokesperson. Tuesday's news release urged the Cambodian government and the international community to "intensify their cooperation to ensure that the trials are completed in a timely manner".
