Kosovo staffer tipped for top post

A top official with the UN’s mission in Kosovo has been tipped to replace the world body’s chief administrator to the ECCC, Michelle Lee, after her retirement in July, a tribunal spokesman said May 1.

The nomination of Knut Rosandhaug was announced April 21 at the opening of the tribunal’s new Phnom Penh Information Center, sources said.

The appointment still requires the approval of the Cambodian government before it can be made official.

Rosandhaug currently works for the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo, where he is executive director of the Kosovo Property Agency and the Kosovo Property Claims Commission.

Peter Foster, spokesman of the United Nations Assistance to the Khmer Rouge Trial (UNAKRT), said he hoped that Rosandhaug, if approved, “would be able to take up his new position in the ECCC as soon as possible.” (Cat Barton)
