More funds needed

India, Singapore and Thailand have expressed interest in providing assistance with

Cambodia's in-kind expenses for the Khmer Rouge Tribunal.

The May 30 meeting at the Council of Ministers was attended by more than 20 diplomatic

missions, but failed to secure any further cash pledges from the international community.

In a statement issued on May 29 regarding the Khmer Rouge tribunal budget, deputy

prime minister Sok An requested help in meeting its remaining $11.8 million share.

The international community has already secured $40 million of their $43 million

commitment to the agreement that establishes the tribunal.

Of the $13.3 million Cambodia is expected to cover, the government will offer $1.5

million from the national budget.

"The Royal Government of Cambodia will contribute $6.7 million (consisting of

$1.5 million in cash, and an estimated $5.2 million in-kind expenses which lie outside

the budget itself)," Sok An wrote in the April 29 statement.
