More money, more problems?

Japan has pledged an additional $21-million to the troubled Khmer Rouge Tribunal, ensuring funding through early 2010. In a recent meeting between Prime Minister Hun Sen and Japan's foreign minister, the issue of corruption at the court was not discussed, according to an article in today's Post.

Meanwhile, lawyers for Nuon Chea, who filed a complaint last week in municipal court related to ECCC corruption, accused judges at the tribunal of using intimidation tactics. The judges claimed Nuon's lawyers had smeared the court and wrote that they "reserve the right to legal recourse against any individuals who have provoked such a problem."
