Japan: "We Hope the Allegations of Kickbacks Are Unfounded"

In the wake of the most of the remainder of the donor corps of the ECCC and the UN probing the veracity of allegations of kickbacks in the Cambodian side of the Court, the Japanese government declared that it was proceeding with the funding regardless as it hoped that the allegations of kickbacks were unfounded. This statement is fully in concert with Japan's broadly known "no questions asked" development funding policy. Viewed from any conceivable angle such policy bears no potential of contributing to the building of the rule of law in Cambodia which is part of the reason why the ECCC exists.
