PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Staff of the Khmer Rouge Tribunal strike Monday because they haven't been paid since December, officials said.
The strike of about 20 translation staff members caused the court to be delayed
"This morning's hearing is temporarily delayed so judges can meet with administration staff to talk about pay," said Neth Pheaktra, spokesman for Khmer Rouge Tribunal.
"The staff announced their boycott during court proceedings," he said. "We will continue work when we get paid."
Pheaktra requests that donor countries help solve this issue by providing funds for national side.
The crisis is affecting 300 Cambodian employees, including, drivers, prosecutors and judges.
The tribunal has been established since 2006 and needs $9.5 mln to operate in 2013, but hasn't received any new funding.
