EU tops up KRT funds

The European Union has kicked in an additional €10 million ($11.1 million) of funding for the Khmer Rouge tribunal and genocide education.

In a statement yesterday, the EU pledged the funds to support both the international and national components of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia, with about $1 million going to genocide education.

“This new contribution to the ECCC is a renewed proof of the commitment of the European Union to improve good governance and the rule of law in Cambodia as well as to raise standards in the administration of justice and in combating impunity in this country,” Fiona Ramsey, Charge d’Affaires of the EU delegation to Cambodia said.

Since 2007, the EU has provided about $19.3 million to the tribunal, a figure that rises to $55 million when separate contributions from EU member states are included.
