Country Report
The trail was suspended and sent back to the investigating judge after a dispute over whether Cambodian law covered the charges of terrorism, and the emergence of three new suspects. Wide budget deficits have been a problem in Cambodia for some time, after reaching 6.5 percent in 2003 and 5.5 percent in 2001. However, it appears that coalition partners in the government were able to divert resources before last July's general election to help finance their own campaigns, and this is set to push up the budget deficit to 7.5 percent in 2003. At present, the shortfall is financed by foreign aid, and while the government has been attempting to reduce the deficit by cutting military expenditure, its efforts have been frustrated by a weak tax base.
