Unpaid KRT staff left to wait longer for salaries

The Khmer Rouge tribunal’s Office of Administration yesterday responded to the demands of the court’s national staff – most of whom have gone without pay since December – saying that, for the time being, they would simply have to keep waiting.

According to court spokesman Neth Pheaktra, the office announced that after “discussions between the Budget and Finance Section (National) and the involved stakeholders, the fund transfer for the due salaries of December 2012 will be further delayed”.
