CMAC money

Donors have praised the once-maligned Cambodian Mine Action Center (CMAC) for its

recovery from mismanagement and corruption. A 1999 report by auditors KPMG led to

donors canceling millions of dollars in funding, and the firing of the previous director-general.

Denmark last month reinstated $600,000 funding. CMAC's new director-general Khem

Sophoan said: "We are very pleased to have received funding from Denmark. Around

80 percent of the KMPG audit recommendations have been implemented and we are working

on the other 20 percent. All the corruption is finished now."
