KRT DONORS MEET TO DISCUSS FUNDING

International donors and officials from the Khmer Rouge tribunal held a meeting at the Japanese embassy on Thursday to discuss funding shortfalls facing the hybrid court’s national staff, which will be forced to take a 50 percent pay cut this month due to budgetary concerns, court officials said. Also in attendance at the meeting, said Dim Sovannarom, a press officer for the court, was Patricia O’Brien, the UN undersecretary general for legal affairs who has been meeting with court and government officials this week. Dim Sovannarom said O’Brien had called on the “around 20” donor countries in attendance to expedite their donations to the court’s national side, and pledged to convene a meeting at UN headquarters in New York next month with other donor country representatives and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to discuss the issue.
