Cambodian translators who have gone without pay for three months went on strike at the genocide trial of former Khmer Rogue leaders today.
Khmer Rouge Tribunal spokesman Neth Pheaktra said that about 30 Cambodian staff members from the translation section walked out just before the court was to hear testimony from a foreign expert.
Testimony that had been scheduled to be given this week and next has been postponed until the dispute is resolved.
Local staff members have not been paid since December because the countries that had agreed to fund the tribunal have not contributed on time.
Foreign workers involved in the trial are paid through a separate budget.
A spokesman said the court had appealed to donors for more money but it was unclear when the workers might be paid.
An estimated 1.7 million died under the Khmer Rouge from forced labour, starvation, medical neglect and execution.
Lord Feldman says that he didn't call grassroots Tories "mad swivel-eyed loons" while his accusers stand by their stories that he did.
