The UN Development Program manages contributions from international donors to the court's Cambodian side. I received the following statement from communications officer Aimee Brown:
"Funding for July was initially held up pending a work plan from the Cambodian side to the Project Board, which is a standard procedure to preserve the integrity of the funds.
Since then, and in light of the allegations of kickbacks, we are reviewing the implications with our donors in order to come to a decision as to what to do about the allegations. We are all aware and concerned about the impact of the delay and are committed to finding a solution as soon as possible."
