Acompromise designed to address UN concerns about unilateral alterations by
the Cambodian government of the KR tribunal law was announced on Jan 24. US Ambassador
Kent Weidemann helped negotiated a deal in which the UN concerns were addressed in
an separate letter to be attached to the law. The plan was necessitated by the Cambodian
government's refusal to re-submit to the National Assembly a version of the law in
which UN concerns were addressed.
