Description:

Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the vote for independence in East Timor and the violence and destruction, supported by Indonesian military forces, that followed. This backgrounder report from Human Rights Watch reviews events of the past year and efforts by the UN -- and questionable ones by the Indonesian government -- to bring those Indonesian leaders responsible for the outbreak to justice. With the scheduled announcement this week of 20 suspects by the Indonesian government, Human Rights Watch sees this as a critical juncture in the effort to achieve justice for East Timor. The report offers recommendations for the UN generally and, in particular, to the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor. A link is also provided to the section on East Timor in their 1999 World Report.
