Sweden pledges SEK 28 million in support for 2016 to 2019

The Government of Sweden has made a new pledge of SEK 28 million to support the international component of the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) for the period 2016 to 2019. The amount will be evenly divided over four years.

Sweden is a key financial backer of the ECCC, and it is a member of the Principal Donors Group. The total financial assistance from Sweden preceding this new pledge amounts to US$ 9.97 million (value at the time of conversion from SEK to US$).

“On behalf of the ECCC, we would like to express our gratitude for the generous and continuous support offered by the Government of Sweden.  We welcome the move to offer a multi-year pledge, as this will assist us in the financial planning”, said Acting Director of the Office of Administration H.E. KRANH Tony and Deputy Director Mr. Knut Rosandhaug in a statement.
