snipshot_62chgo0d303.jpgHumanitarian efforts also include the environment, and Angelina Jolie is making sure she covers all angles in her efforts to make the world a better place for third world countries.

Earlier today, Jolie made a brief visit to Cambodia to engage in a “discussion about a forest conservation project with Ieng Vuth, another municipality deputy governor and the son of former Khmer Rouge Foreign Minister Ieng Sary.”

Jolie has “promised up to US$1.3 million (€1 million) over five years for a forest conservation program that was approved by the Cambodian government in 2003.” Unfortunately, there’s a little controversy involving an associate of Jolie’s, Mounh Sarath, in the conservation project,

“Trevor Neilson, her philanthropic and political adviser, told The Associated Press in New York last month that Mounh Sarath has misappropriated “hundreds of thousands of dollars” Jolie had provided for the conservation effort.”

Apparently, Mounh Sarah attempted to meet Jolie while she visited Cambodia, but she would have none of it. He claims all funds appropriated to the conservation effort can be accounted for.

Tough call. Dealings with third world countries involving large sums of money for the environment are often tricky. These people are desperate. The forest is generally not the first thing on their mind. Jolie wants to make a difference. Who to trust? One thing’s for sure, you probably do not want to piss this woman off….
