Japan Bails Out ECCC Again

The Japanese government has announced a $200,000 contribution to the "Cambodian side" of the Tribunal to stave off yet another looming funding crisis. Japan, thus far, has been by far the largest contributor to the ECCC. Japanese contributions come with no strings attached, as Japan refuses to pay any heed to the financial irregularities alleged to have been committed by some members of the "Cambodian side" of the ECCC. Although diversification of funding sources was expected to be the fundraising route the RGC would take, the RGC has shown that it will be reluctant to seek alternative sources of funding and will continue knocking on the door which has opened so many times before instead.
