Germany pledges for KRT victims unit

German officials signed an agreement with the Khmer Rouge tribunal on Wednesday, pledging €400,000 (US$493,154) to the court’s Victims Support Section. According to a statement issued by the German embassy, the pledge was made in New York on May 25, and will go towards supporting the involvement of victims at the court. “The German Federal Government is convinced that the ECCC can only fully fulfill its mandate and help Cambodia come to terms with history through the broad and representative participation of the victims,” the statement read. Germany has provided more than €7 million in support to the ECCC since 2005, it added.
