Swedes’ donation keeps Khmer Rouge court on track

Cambodia's Khmer Rouge tribunal was back in the black after the latest financial contribution from the government of Sweden, court officials said yesterday.

The Post had reported that the international side of the tribunal was headed into the red this month, which would have seriously affected its ability to function and pay salaries.

The court announced last week that Sweden had pledged about US$4 million for the 2012-2013 budget.

“With this latest donation, the court has operational capability without interruption until August,” legal affairs spokesman Lars Olsen said yesterday.

The court spent $141.1 million from its inception until 2011 and has set a budget of about $90 million for 2012 and 2013, but the international side has not secured enough financial support for this period yet.
