TRC Runs Out of Money?!?!?!

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission has suspended its work for lack of funds.

"Some of the donors have not up to now been able to translate their pledges into physical cash," Dolopai said, adding that "our needs are enormous".

A commission official said that expenses for the recording of evidence expected to last three months were estimated at $2-million (about R14-million).

Main donors so far have been the Liberian government, the United Nations Development programme (UNDP) and an international
non-governmental organisation Open Institute of west Africa (OSIWA), set up by American George Soros.

Doloplai said the TRC has completely run out of cash.

Something tells me that there's much more to this story than meets the eye. Why did we see no stories in recent weeks about how the TRC was about to run out of money?
