Court cash crisis curbed: UN

The Khmer Rouge tribunal’s international arm will have funds to sustain operations through until October after two donor countries make good on their pledges in the coming weeks, a senior UN official said yesterday.

David Scheffer, the UN-appointed Special Expert for the Khmer Rouge tribunal, said in an email to the Post that two major donor countries will make good on their pledges of financial support.

Australia’s offering of almost $1.5 million should arrive at the end of this month, and a $1.1 million donation from the Norwegians will be paid “as soon as possible”, he said.

The financial reprieve will expire at the end of October, when the court will face a US$4 million shortfall for the rest of 2012.
