I refer to the article by Richard Woodd entitled "Guillotine aimed at KR trial
funds" (PPPost, July 2, 2004). According to the article, UN budget estimates
presume a hypothetical scenario of five convictions under the planned trials. This
statement is not based on fact. No United Nations document contains a projection
of convictions, explicitly or by implication, nor has such a projection been the
subject of discussion with the Cambodian Government Task Force.

The figure was taken from an unsigned paper titled "Cambodian Extraordinary
Chambers: the case for full and fast funding", tabled at an informal meeting
on the KR Trials on June 7, convened by the Open Society Justice Initiative. The
hypothesis was the author's.
