KRT in brief

* Khieu Samphan's lawyers lost an appeal Friday requesting that their client's entire case file be translated into French. Judges ruled that the appeal was inadmissible. While the court's translation rules allow for a number of primary documents to be translated, they do not require the translation of every document in a case file. Khieu's foreign lawyer, Jacques Verges, has continually argued that he cannot properly defend his client until the entire case file is translated into French.

* The Cambodian side of the tribunal is running out of money. According to local press reports, the court's Cambodian side could be bankrupt within the next few weeks. However, tribunal spokespeople remain confident that funding will come through.

* While the court's Cambodian side struggles financially, the UN side just received a pledge of $1.5-million from the United States. The U.S. made its first-ever donation to the court in September.
