    Default Cambodian Group Accuse Angelina Jolie Of Fake Humanitarian Work

    Cambodian group: Jolie reneged on aid

    A Cambodian development group with which Angelina Jolie was working on a nature conservation project accused the actress Monday of reneging on a pledge to provide aid, but her lawyer denied the allegation.

    In 2003, Cambodia approved a forest conservation project funded by Jolie, for which she promised up to $1.5 million for community-based work over five years in remote areas of northwestern Cambodia.

    The project was to be implemented in partnership with the Cambodian non-profit group Cambodian Vision in Development, or CVD.

    The group's director, Mounh Sarath, on Monday accused the Hollywood actress of cheating after she stopped providing money to his group without explanation.

    But Sam Borana, Jolie's attorney in Cambodia, said she was merely exercising her right to oversee the work, and was establishing a separate organization in Cambodia to which she would provide the funds.

    The money for Jolie's project dubbed the "Maddox Jolie Project" in honor of the son she adopted from Cambodia is to create programs for villagers dwelling in the forest, so they can rely less on logging to make a living.

    Educational programs will be set up to teach villagers about forest conservation, and some money will be used for aerial surveys of the target area of 148,200 acres.

    "I am accusing her of violating the agreement under which she agreed to provide funds to CVD," Mounh Sarath said. "The more than $1 million she has promised has never arrived."

    He said Jolie cut off funding and ended cooperation with his group in December last year without explanation. He and his staff have also been barred from using the project's facilities, which Jolie's lawyers have claimed is her private property, he said.

    Since he had not received an explanation of such actions, he decided to go public with his complaints, he added.

    He said Jolie's action was unfair since he helped arrange for her to be honored for her aid by being awarded Cambodian citizenship last year.

    Jolie's lawyer, Sam Borana, confirmed that that the actress has stopped providing funds to CVD, and said the project will become an independent non-governmental organization.

    He said the controversy was the result of a misunderstanding on the part of Mounh Sarath.

    "This is not about violation of the agreement. Ms Angelina Jolie just exercised her right to decide to stop giving the money," he said

    Hmm, she always has some red tape reason why she doesn't follow through on her donations promises, doesn't she? God bless her for all of the good work she has done but somethin' ain't right.

    Thumbs up

    I LOVE it, she isn't party to being blackmailed at all, sounds like to me she found out something was a bit hinky about this group and decided to cut ties with them, and continue on with her work elsewhere, not a THING wrong with that.
    They didn't like it and probably tried to shake her down.
    Good for her............

    I'm glad it's happening more and more often. There are so many people sacrificing their lives to development aid and noone knows their names.

    Ha.. I read the same article. Dude's been stealing money, that's why she cut off his organization and started another. Interesting.
