Global watchdog receives pat on back

The international watchdog Global Witnesses received an award February 7 from Foreign Policy Magazine and the Center for Global Development for its investigations into resource exploitation around the world. The NGO was exiled from Cambodia following its release of “Cambodia’s Family Tree,” a report outlining allegations of extensive involvement by government officials in illegal logging. Global Witness grew out of the efforts of three people fighting to end the logging trade around the Thai-Cambodia border in the early 1990s, which was financing the war between the Khmer Rouge and government, according to co-founder Patrick Alley.
