Government at odds with World Bank

Cambodian government ministers continued to say the World Bank has failed to provide

evidence of corruption, when questioned about wrongdoings at the quarterly Government

Donor Coordinating Committee meeting on June 14.

Finance Minister Keat Chhon accused the World Bank of not giving enough evidence

of corruption, and also said it had told news media about the allegations before

telling the government.

The World Bank is demanding that the government pay back $7.6 million after alleging

they found evidence of corruption in several project contracts last month.

The Finance Ministry said earlier this week that it was only accountable for close

to $1.7 million.
