Donors to Meet on Tribunal Funding

Donor representatives are expected to meet in New York next week to examine a final proposal for increased funds for the Khmer Rouge tribunal, a spokesman said.

"We don't need to have the funds in the bank, we just need the pledges, and that is enough for us to proceed," tribunal spokesman Peter Foster said.

Tribunal officials have been reworking their initial request of $114 million, and officials said Thursday that figure was likely to be around $48 million for the trials of the five arrested Khmer Rouge leaders. That figure could increase if more are arrested and charged.
