UN, govt to hold KRT talks

KRT UPDATE

UNITED Nations Assistant Secretary General for Legal Affairs Peter Taksoe-Jensen will arrive in Phnom Penh for tribunal talks with Deputy Prime Minister Sok An on Tuesday, court officials confirmed Sunday. Sok An was last publicly engaged in communication with UN officials regarding the tribunal in September, when he openly criticised the body's handling of a review into allegations of kickbacks at the court. Though there has been no agenda set for the meeting, it is likely that the issue of corruption will arise, as no officials have since commented publicly on the results of the review, which was concluded in September.
