KR Trial funding

Money may no longer be an obstacle for the controversial Khmer Rouge Tribunal. Japan

pledged to make up the Cambodian shortfall on June 21, adding $11.8 million to the

$1.5 million the government has already come up with. New Zealand gave $500,000 last

month and Tuesday, June 27, Germany pledged an additional 1.5 million Euro beyond

its initial pledge of $1 million made in New York City in March of this year. That

brings Germany's contribution to just under $3 million and is meant to reflect commitment

to human rights and legal and judicial reform in Cambodia. "Germany expects

the trial will start as soon as possible and will not be delayed any further,"

said a spokesperson for the German embassy.
