The German embassy would like to clarify some of the information in the
article "German government announces freeze in KR tribunal funding," in
the February 3 edition of the Post. According to the embassy, Wolfgang
Thierse, vice president of the German Bundestag, said he was concerned
about the corruption allegations in the KRT and expressed his
expectation that the issue would be addressed. Thierse made no
statement that the German government intends to freeze funding to the
court. The German government intends to continue to support the KRT.
