New Deputy Director of Administration Knut Rosandhaug introduced himself to media today, thanking "the people of Phnom Penh for warmly receiving me."
He said he intends to stay in Cambodia "until the very end of the tribunal" and that he was fully aware of the deteriorating health of detainees and need for swift justice.
Recently stationed in the Balkans, Rosandhaug said he was pleased to come to Cambodia where the atmosphere is less combative.
"It's a joy to come here," he said.
Rosandhaug took over for Michelle Lee on June 1.
