Norway contributes to Khmer Rouge tribunal

The government of Norway has announced a contribution of US$1.1 million to the Khmer Rouge tribunal, bringing the court closer to filling a multi-million dollar budgetary shortfall. Norway’s contribution will go toward the United Nations side of the hybrid court. With the new contribution, UN court spokesman Lars Olsen said, the tribunal now faces a funding shortfall for this year of roughly $11 million – $1.9 million on the Cambodian side and $9 million on the UN side. “We are very thankful for the generosity and continuous support offered by Norway. Such support is imperative to ensure that the court can complete its mandate, bringing justice to the Cambodian people and the victims of the Khmer Rouge,” the tribunal said in a statement.
