Tribunal releases budget for 2010-11

The Khmer Rouge tribunal has released its budget for 2010-11 after donors approved the final version early last week, according to a statement issued Monday. The court’s two-year budget totals US$87.1 million, minus contingencies, $42.9 million of which is slated for 2010 and $44.2 million for 2011. The court’s budget for 2009 was $36.4 million, tribunal spokesman Lars Olsen said Sunday. Of the $87.1 million, the international side of the hybrid court has been allocated $65.4 million for the next two years and the local side of the court $21.7 million. The court’s budget report also approved a request from the UN for the increase in the wages of full-time international judges and prosecutors at the court, increasing their pay from $129,500 per year to $186,904. The number of workers on the UN side of the court is also expected to rise from 160 posts this year to 173 posts in 2011, as the tribunal gets set to hear its second case.
