Norway’s KRT donation shifted to national side

The government of Norway has agreed to let an April donation of $1 million to the international component of the Khmer Rouge tribunal be redirected to the court’s national component instead, the tribunal announced yesterday.

In the announcement, the court said that the funds would go towards covering the salaries of national-side staffers, something it has struggled with in recent years.

Acting administration chief Tony Kranh offered his “profound thanks” for the contribution, which he said would cover salaries from April to June, and called on more donors to step forward with pledges to cover the remainder of the year.
