Funding concerns for tribunal

A delegation of top Khmer Rouge tribunal donors has praised Cambodia’s “commitment” to the court. But when questioned by journalists, they equivocated on whether the government had made any assurances that funding obligations for this year would be met.

The national side of the hybrid tribunal requires a total of $6.4 million for 2014 and is still facing a funding shortfall of more than $2m.

The Principal Donors Group has been visiting the ECCC and on Friday said it did not wish to dip into UN reserve funds.

“We are undertaking active efforts to expand the donor base for the national component so it is our strong aim and objective not to have to dip into those funds,” PDG chairman Jesse Clarke said.

A new $4.6m contribution by the Swedish government to the international side of the court was also announced yesterday.
