In Brief: Japan supplies ECCC with US$200,000

Japan has donated

US$200,000 to the Cambodian side of the Khmer Rouge tribunal, which

announced last month it had no money to pay staff their March salaries.

In a press release Friday, Japanese officials said the embassy had made

an "urgent decision" based on funding requests by the Cambodian

government. The court's budget is split between the national and

international sides, and Japan is the only country to have donated

money to the Cambodian side since allegations of corruption arose

mid-last year.
