German government to support KR victims

THE German government has pledged €1.2 million (around US$1.58 million) to support victims’ participation at the Khmer Rouge tribunal. According to a statement issued by the court yesterday, the agreement was signed on Monday by Tony Kranh, the KRT’s Acting Director of Administration, and a senior official from GTZ, the German development agency. The money will go towards a 16-month project, ending in December 2011, that will cover the “processing, outreach, and legal representation” of victims at the hybrid court. Since 2005, Germany has donated over €7 million ($9.22 million) to both the international and national sides of the KRT, the statement said.
