Japan extends funds to Khmer Rouge trial

Japan has injected $200,000 into the Khmer Rouge genocide tribunal, which has been beset by funding shortages and delays, a court official was quoted by Vietnam News Agency as saying March 20.

The money will be used to offset a shortfall in March salaries for Cambodian court employees, tribunal spokesman Reach Sambath was quoted by news agencies as saying.

"The fund comes at a time when the Cambodian side of the court is having difficulties in disbursing salaries," the spokesman said, adding he hoped other donors would help meet payroll costs in coming months.

"In response to the request from the royal government of Cambodia, the government of Japan has made an urgent decision to contribute $200,000 finance the Cambodian share of the trial budget," said a press statement by the Japanese embassy.

The Japanese Embassy said it hoped the trials would render justice and be carried out properly and promptly, noting those on trial are already old.
